I Work With Animals! Gray Wolf Trainer

Job title: Senior Animal Trainer
Where do you work?
I work at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Virginia.
How long have you been a gray wolf trainer?
I started training wolves here at Busch Gardens in April 2005.
What does a gray wolf trainer do on a daily basis?
We provide the wolves with all of their daily care, training and management. This includes preparing the wolves' diets, cleaning their habitats, feeding them, administering any vitamins or medications they might need, training new behaviors and writing records of their daily training and health.
When Busch Gardens is open to the public, we rotate wolves in and out of a habitat where guests can see them and we present a show called "Wolves: America's Forgotten Predator" several times each day that gives our guests a closer look at one of Mother Nature's most important, yet misunderstood, family members.
