Chris K is the Interpretation officer at Shepreth Wildlife Park. He teaches people about wildlife within the zoo and local schools. After graduating in zoology he went to teach in Uganda. "I was working with about 1,000 kids for about six months... A lot of people who do work in zoos have always wanted to be a zoo keeper but for me I've always to be out in the wild and looking for the animals out there." He's hoping to go to Brazil soon to do some photography for a charity that buys up rain forest, and in the longer term he would like to spend some time alone in a rain forest and get involved with wildlife documentaries.
