Year zoo career began:
Claire is an education Coordinator at Disney’s Animal Kingdom where she mentors Conservation Education Presenters and International Cultural Representatives. She also supports the education program known as “Wilderness Explorers” and collaborates on projects that support their conservation partners. She has been in this role since 2018.
Claire’s favorite part of her job is getting to work with cast members from all over the world and help them develop into better educators in the zoo field. She advises that aspiring professionals get out there and find what interests you and seek opportunities to get involved. Even if a job or experience isn’t as enjoyable as anticipated, it’s still invaluable experience for helping you get where you want to go!
