Hi my name’s Beth and I’m the Marketing Assistant here at Newquay Zoo. To continue on with our Meet the Team Q&A, I have met up with Jane to find out a little more about her… so here goes!

What department do you work in and what is your role?

I work in reception as the office supervisor.

How long have you worked here?

I have worked here for a year now.

What made you want to work at the zoo?

Well, as well as being interested in animals I do actually have a degree in animal behavior and have worked for the past 27 years in a veterinary practice. So I thought why not combine my administrative practice with my love for animals.

Tell us an interesting fact about yourself...

I am a championship show dog judge – travelling all over the UK and also to the World Championships in Germany.

What’s your favorite animal and why?

I would have to say a lion because of their sheer power and how beautiful they are.

Who are the 3 guests you would invite to your dream dinner party (dead or alive)?

  1. Peter Kay (for the humour)
  2. Stephen Fry (as he’s very interesting)
  3. Elvis Presley (for his looks back in the day)

What’s your favorite colour?


What’s your favorite food?

Cake – any cake!

What superpower would you like to have?

Definitely to be invisible as I’m quite nosy!

What’s your favorite film?

100% Shaun of the Dead – I just think it’s a fab film and so funny! However, Life of Brian is a very close second.

Stay tuned to meet more of the team.
