Ishbel started with the Retail Crew in Dec 2008. Ishbel will greet you in our Australiana Shop with a smile and can tell you about all our beautiful Australian made products. "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 quiet fond of the Giraffes. "I love their long blue tongues and that no Giraffe has the same spots or colouring."
