“Reaseheath wasn’t just a place to study – it became home to me. I loved the social life and the facilities across college and at the animal centre were amazing. But it was the staff I found most inspiring, particularly as many of them already had experience in the industry. They really helped me decide where I wanted to go in life.  

“Since then I’ve worked in zoos and wildlife parks with a particular aim of developing better welfare standards. I’m always coming across former Reaseheath students who are equally passionate about making a difference to welfare and to the conservation of species.”
