How I got into animal care


As a child I remember driving past Askham Bryan on the way to the seaside and saying that I would go there. Animal care was all I ever wanted to do. I studied Animal Management - first the National Diploma and then at Degree level. I worked in animal related science for a couple of years, and then got the job back at Askham Bryan.
