Leah joined Matuku Link in 2022, bringing her love of learning and passion for the natural world to our education programme. A former primary school teacher, Leah has worked in schools in both New Zealand and the UK. While living in Bristol, she volunteered at Bristol Zoo, giving talks about and taking care of a range of animals, including snakes, hissing cockroaches, and ferrets. Nowadays, you’ll find her out in the wetlands with school groups and holiday programme children, getting excited about the insects, eels, birds, plants, and magic of our wonderful wetlands. She’s also your go-to person for any queries relating to school visits and our school holiday programme.
