Welcome Sabrina!

Stacks Image 101
Sabrina is based in Italy and will work as a remote collaborator on the Illustrated Handbook on Zookeeping, an ICZ project that aims to provide caregivers with a simple yet comprehensive guide to improve their safety and animal husbandry via the use of images.

Growing up in a vet family, Sabrina developed a strong fondness towards animals and nature in general at an early age. Seven years ago, that bond brought her to her first professional experience in the field: working as a trainer and caretaker of birds of prey in a theme park in Rome. Following this position, she had many experiences as a volunteer in zoological parks and wildlife rehabilitation centres, both in Italy and in The Netherlands.

In 2014 she began to work as a full-time zookeeper, focusing her attention not only on animal husbandry and training, but also on public awareness through numerous educational activities, such as speeches, demonstrations and laboratories. During these past five years, she expanded her skills working with a wide variety of species, including primates, reptiles, large carnivores, birds and many others. As member of AIGZOO, the Italian Association of Zookeepers, Sabrina continues her professional training attending courses and workshops regarding general husbandry, training, enrichment and conservation. Currently, she is working at lo Zoo di Napoli.

During her free time, she is devoted to another great passion: nature and wildlife photography. In her numerous travels, she always enjoys natural excursions and never misses a chance to visit other zoos and centres of zoological interest to take photos and connect with colleagues from all over the world.
