Getting the chance to teach the next generation about the greatest threats to wildlife is the fulfilment of a lifelong dream for Knowsley Safari’s newest recruit.
Eleanor Ingman, 22, of Chesterfield, has joined the park’s learning and discovery team.
With a degree in biology from the University of Leeds and a strong background of zoo-based and volunteer experience in Torquay, Belize and Uganda, Eleanor has been working with animals for four years.
Eleanor, pictured second from the left, said: “My main passions are wildlife conservation and animal behaviour and I love to teach others and get them excited about these subjects.
“It is very important right now to help to protect habitats as they are vanishing at an alarming rate.
“Educating others about simple changes that have great effects to raise awareness and start to change people’s behaviours,” she added.
