As a small family run zoo, Sharon and Craig are passionate about the animals they care for, many of which have been rescued and are now cared for so they can live happy lives. 



Sharon and Craig


Out staff love the animals as much as you will

Ever since experiencing the Jungle Zoo as a volunteer in 2011, Lindsey has known that she wanted to work with animals. She has been working at the Jungle zoo since 2013. She volunteered in her spare time during the weeks she was home from from Derby, where she attended university to study a  Bsc Hons in Zoology. Graduating in 2012 with a 1st in her degree she moved down south to volunteer in the education department for Dartmoor Zoo before moving back to her home town in 2013 to join the Jungle Zoo team. She now works alongside Sharon and Craig with the animals, and loves the educational side supporting the school groups and the education of the local children.
