Terri Irwin

Terri Irwin

Terri Raines was born in Eugene, Oregon, USA on July 20, 1964. Her father drove heavy-haul trucks and would often bring home wildlife that had been injured on the road. This instilled in Terri a love for wildlife and a desire to help animals from a very early age. Terri spent her childhood caring for and riding horses, and spent her summers as a young adult exploring the wilderness area in north-east Oregon on horseback. This further convinced Terri of the need to protect wildlife and conserve ...

Wes

Wes
Director

Wes has had a passion for reptiles since he was young, and in his early teens moved to the Sunshine Coast and
discovered Australia Zoo (then known as the Queensland Reptile and Fauna Park). At the time the facility had only one other employee outside of the Irwin family and in 1988 Wes became the second full-time employee. Starting as a volunteer whilst still at school, Wes' love of reptiles (especially snakes) and his get up-and-go attitude led to a natural progression of becoming not only Steve's right hand man, but also his best mate. All over the world Wes assisted Steve with wildlife rescues and documentary filming. Like peas in a pod these two were always up to something, and you can bet it generally had something to do with reptiles! Today, Wes is the Director of Australia Zoo and the Chairman of Wildlife Warriors (Australia Zoo's wildlife charity).

Kelsey

Kelsey
Curator

Kelsey started at Australia Zoo (then known as the Queensland Reptile and Fauna Park) as a school based volunteer and general keeper aged just 14 years. She was handpicked by Steve Irwin to join the original Australia Zoo team, when there were only two employees! While goannas are her favourite animal, venomous snakes and crocodiles hold a special interest for her...and are a tonne of fun! As Australia Zoo continued to grow, so did her job. Kelsey is now Head Curator of Australia Zoo and is full of enthusiasm, always ready to take on any task at hand! It's a big job running a zoo with over 1200 animals, and there is never a dull moment to be had - Kelsey is constantly on the go, overseeing the extensive animal keeping team.
