Clare has plenty of experience working with animals and children. She has cared for rescued elephants in Thailand, built sanctuaries in Ecuador and been a bird of prey handler and demonstrator in the UK. She has also tutored GCSE Maths and English in the UK and taught English as a foreign language in Asia and South America. Conservation and animal welfare are crucial to Clare and most of her animals are rescued or rehomed – you can find out more about them below.

“Animals are amazing! I love all of mine to bits and find it impossible to choose a favorite. They each have their own unique personalities and it’s brilliant to watch people’s face light up when they interact with them. It brings learning to life in the best way ever!”
