Kathryn does it by the book!

DZG regular Kathryn Willett is so crazy about our animals… she’s put them into a book!


The keen amateur photographer, who visits our Castle Hill site two or three times a week, has used a selection of her stunning snaps of our amazing animals to make two photo books.

Her first 100-page book features a wide selection of our 1,300-strong animal collection but Kathryn’s second photo book focuses on her favourite Daseep, our beautiful tigress.

The latest album features 56 photos of the gorgeous five-year-old Sumatran and makes a wonderful keepsake for Kathryn.

She said: “I have a few of my photos on the wall at home but I couldn’t keep adding to them so I decided to make up the books.

“I keep them in my lounge and love leafing through them.

“Dudley Zoo is a very special place to me and these books bring back some wonderful memories.”

Kathryn brought her books on site to show keepers and staff who were very impressed with her creative collections.
