    Hello Everyone,

    I have worked as a zoo keeper in the past and have a real passion for great apes.
    I am currently a full time mum who in my rare free time these days still volunteer at rare breeds farm which i have done on and off for the last 4 years. When i am able i really enjoy visiting zoos and wildlife parks and adding to my photography collection of both captive animals and British wildlife.
    I am still hoping one day to do some overseas conservation work, will have to see what the future brings :)

    Kiang, i was a keeper at a small place in Cornwall, i would rather not quote the place as it fell short of expectations of what i had ever envisaged my dream job to be and it was a chapter in my life i don't wish to mull over. All i can say is i hope the future will bring some new adventure :)
