Shae joined the Australia Zoo Retail Crew in April 2010. Shae loves working at Australia Zoo with all the amazing animals and dedicated staff.
Some of the amazing encounters Shae has done at the Zoo are with Dingoes, Rhino, Lemur, Red Panda, Tassie devil, Wombat and Tiger, and has loved every one of them!!
Shae’s favourite animals ever since she was a child are the Tigers. In her spare time, Shae enjoys reading, climbing mountains and playing with her pet dog.
Ishbel started with the Retail Crew in Dec 2008. "I love working at Australia Zoo because of the conservation message we send out to people, and getting to meet so many different people from around the world, when they visit our retail shops throughout the Zoo."
Having worked at the Zoo for a while, Ishbel loves all our animals, but is quite fond of the Giraffes. "I love their long blue tongues and that no Giraffe has the same spots or colouring."
Outside of the Zoo, Ishbel enjoys climbing the Glass House Mountains, going to the beach, and hanging out with family and friends, including her cute little Dachshund Ellie.
Michael joined the Zoo Crew in May 2014. Having worked in different departments including Security and Steve's Safari Shuttles, Michael is now working in our very busy warehouse. Michael has a background in customer service, retail and wholesale sales. "Working with animals and meeting visitors everyday creates an exciting place to work"
Outside of the Zoo, Michael enjoys relaxing and volunteers with the Rural Fire Service QLD.
Shellee has always loved all creatures great and small, and since joining the Australia Zoo's Retail crew in 2003 has felt privelaged and grateful each day she works in her dream environment. Afterall, it's not too often you get to say "Good Morning" to Cockatoos, Wombats, Koalas, Crocodiles, Piglets, Sheep and Goats on your way to the office.
Shellee throughly enjoys her role of looking after the Zoo's Online Shop , which helps to raise much needed funds for ongoing conservation efforts, not only for our wildlife here in Australia, but for endangered species all over the world.
With thousands of visitors from all over the world passing through the gates daily, all team members understand the importance of making a lasting impression to our patrons. A job at Australia Zoo is more than a vocation, it's a lifestyle - just ask any of our team members. Australia Zoo employees love animals and conservation, have an exceptional self-drive attitude towards work and of course, wear the world famous khaki uniforms with pride! You just have to walk around the Zoo to feel the electricity in the air. The atmosphere creates an exciting experience for all visitors and a dream workplace environment for all employees.
