Congratulations to Senior Keeper, Sarah Evans, who’s our latest employee of the month!
Sarah, who works with our big cats and ungulates, received this month’s accolade alongside gift vouchers after being nominated by colleagues for her continued hard work and dedication, especially with fundraising for world animal days.
Over the last few months alone, Sarah has helped us raise more than £2,300 for a number of animal projects including 21st Century Tiger and the Giraffe Conservation Foundation.
Assistant Curator, Jay Haywood, said: “Sarah was chosen as this month’s winner, because of her dedication to raising money to help animals in the wild.
“We’re proud to support lots of different world animal days here at DZG and Sarah willingly works her days off to set up the events and speak to visitors while fundraising for lots of different causes.
“She’s also in the process of setting up a fundraising committee, involving staff from all sections of the zoo, so we can hopefully raise even more money for the charities in the future.”
Well done, Sarah!
