Born and raised in Holland
Jerry moved to the UK in
2009 where he carried on a successful career in teaching. Awarded an 'outstanding' from Ofsted for his continued work in 'Special Needs Education'. Jerry has many years of experience working with emotional, social, learning and behaviour difficulties. After working in education for 18 years Jerry felt he needed a new challenge and so has put teaching on hold for the time being to concentrate on working with the animals and bringing that more into schools.
His love for animals and their welfare comes from growing up around animals in Holland and that love only grew after adopting several animals in both Holland and the UK.
First and foremost Jerry is in charge of all the educational elements of our encounters. He is also our enclosure man and is brilliant at making purpose built enclosures for the animals to give them the amount of space they need whilst being safe and secure. Jerry also handles all our bookings and messages so if you email/phone us or message on Facebook then it will be Jerry who will be helping you.
