Thomas J Collard

Having a huge passion for all things “zoo”, Thomas has been following BITE for years, and recently became a member of the team. Thomas has a particular interest in animal records; his experiences include at conducting studbook reviews and drafting regional collection plans at Blackpool Zoo, alongside data organisation and input at Yorkshire Wildlife Park. He is currently on a yearlong research internship at Paignton Zoo as part of his BSc Zoo Biology degree at Nottingham Trent University. Whilst his weekdays are made up of behavioural observations of species such as Giraffe and Mishmi Takin, his weekends involve trips to zoos around the country.
