International Women's Day!

Happy International Women’s Day!

Here at Merlin Entertainments we are proud to say that 66% of the workforce is female with an even 50/50 split in the senior leadership team! Merlin Entertainments proudly employs hundreds of women across keeper/aquarist and science related roles. At WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo alone, the diversity split is 79% Females, with 81% of science-based roles occupied by females.

To celebrate International Women’s Day 2019, we decided to celebrate some of the strong women we employ!

Caroline Monro is a senior Keeper at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo and also ZAA’s 2017 Zookeeper of the year. Caroline runs the Koala breeding program, is the deputy of the Wild Life Conservation Fund and is a general wiz on all things animals! She has even hand raised many of the animals here at the zoo at her home. Caroline is also an advocate for sustainability and inspires others in the team to be better people for the planet. Not only has she reduced plastic waste at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo to  almost zero, she even makes her own cleaning products! With a strong team behind her, Caroline says she is “Proud to be part of a team who is reversing the stereotype, and encourages other females looking for a career in STEM fields to never be discouraged”.
