Jess Aldred is completing two weeks Work Experience with us at the end of this week. She has been visiting Seaview Wildlife with her family ever since she was a little girl, so she says that this work experience assignment has been extra special for her.
Jess lives just across the Solent – near Gunwharf Quays and has commuted across on the Fast Cat ferry each day. She is a student at South Downs College, in Waterlooville, studying towards a Btec Extended Diploma in Animal Management (level 3). Her future plans include applying for a place at Southampton University to study for a Zoology degree – hopefully starting next year. We all wish Jess the best of luck and thank her for all her help over the last fortnight!
Jess says she loves all the animals here at the Park – but perhaps the Wallabies and Meerkats just sneak ahead as her favourites! On that note I’ve included three images of Jess having some close encounters with the Meerkats earlier this afternoon.
