Congrats crafty Claire!

Congratulations to our crafty Senior Keeper Claire Williams who has been named our latest Employee of the Month!

The Ungulates keeper was nominated by Press Officer Rachel Hickman for her help in creating enrichment for our meerkat mob ahead of them predicting a winner of the recent football derby for a local radio station.

Rachel said: “When we were asked by BBC WM to take part in a live fun piece ahead of the local derby, Claire went over and above to make two papier mâché enrichment balls overnight for the meerkats, which she decorated with the Wolves and West Bromwich Albion logos and filled with mealworms.

“Although our meerkats didn’t get the result right on the day, Claire’s craftiness, which was filmed by the reporter, saw us get great coverage not only on the radio, but also on social media channels, the BBC website and the evening’s television news.”

In thanks for her efforts, the zoo’s management team awarded Claire a certificate and a gift voucher.

This month’s notable achievements went to Senior Keeper Cheyenne Darkins and Presenter Rosie Whiteside.
