Cockle Park Farm
I joined the University in 2005 after a 16 year career in Zoo Animal Management. I worked with a variety of stock and gained a great deal of experience in animal husbandry. For the majority of my time in zoos I specialised in Elephants and Primates and helped lead one of the country's most successful training and breeding programs for Asian Elephants, at Whipsnade Wild Animal Park, where I finished my zoo career.
In my capacity as Research Facilities Manager, I lead and manage the technical support based at the University's Cockle Park Farm, ensuring that all research objectives are achieved. I am ultimately responsible for all Health and Safety matters relating to research activities and am lead NACWO (Named Animal Care and Welfare Officer) for the farm, ensuring all associated legal responsibilities are met, a culture of care is maintained and that the welfare of animals on trial is of the highest possible standard.
