I hold an Animal Exhibiting/Encounters licence.
I do not do parties or shopping centres etc.
My shows are held in schools and some events with a controlled audience.
All handling is carried out under my supervision and guidance.
I show mostly invertebrates and sometimes reptiles and amphibians.
All animals are housed in large vivariums in my house.
All animals are transported in safe housing.
I am a fellow of The British Naturalists' Association and The Royal Entomological Society.
I was Education Officer for Essex Wildlife Trust for 15 years.
I have been working in wildlife conservation and education for 31 years.
