Today is International Zoo and Aquarium Educators (IZE) day. A day to recognise and celebrate the important role conservation educators play in educating and empowering people to love nature and take action for conservation.
On this special day, we are proud to introduce you to a phenomenal conservation educator, our very own Executive Manager uShaka Sea World Education, Jone Porter. Over the years Jone has received many accolades for her role in conservation education, taken on many roles and inspired millions of people to care for nature.
We sat down and asked her a few questions for you to get to know her a bit better. We asked her questions such as where and when her interest in nature began, if she could fix one environmental challenge tomorrow, what would it be? what the most amazing animals she has had the privilege of working with are, and many more.
We trust you will be inspired by Jone, and join us in acknowledging the phenomenal role Zoo Educators play in spreading conservation awareness.
