Abby joined Animal Ark at the beginning of 2019. Abby was born in the UK but left before she was a year old and grew up in the Middle East, returning to the UK in 2019.
From a young age she has possessed a passion for animals and while living in Abu Dhabi she dove head first into the equestrian and falconry communities.
She was a senior bird trainer for four years at Emirates Park Zoo working with owls, eagles, hawks, vultures and falcons and helped develop the zoo’s bird facilities.
She married her husband, a herpetologist, in 2016 after meeting at the zoo and together they started their home zoo. Currently Abby has two cats and a baby cane toad, but expected to grow given their return to the UK.
