Familiar faces!

We’ve welcomed back two familiar faces to DZ.

Senior Keepers Adam Walker and Rachel Marson have returned after spending spells at Twycross Zoo.

Adam, from Dudley, who previously worked with our big cats has rejoined the site’s primate team.

Adam, said: “It’s great to be back working alongside familiar faces, but also getting the opportunity to work on a section I haven’t before.

“I’m getting to grips with all things primate but have quickly discovered orang utan, Benji,had taken an immediate dislike to me and I have to dodge his spit on a daily basis!”

Meanwhile Rachel, from Wolverhampton, who left DZ in 2010, has returned to work with the site’s birds.

Rachel said: “I’m enjoying being back and it’s nice to be working with some of the same animals and staff as I did six years ago.”
