ABI BACKSHALL

“Hi I’m Abi Backshall BSc Hons.

In May 2018 I graduated from Writtle University College with a BSc Hons in Animal Management.

In June 2018 I joined Idlewild as a volunteer and loved getting to know all the animals and helping with their care. I started helping out covering shifts along with working the weekend shifts and due to the commitment I showed to the Sanctuary I was given the opportunity to join the team and work full time in June 2019. Its a huge pleasure to be working full time at the Sanctuary and I am excited to learn more as well as ensuring all the animals are happy and healthy”.


“Outside of work I enjoy sports including running/athletics and of course spending time with my own pets; my Springer Spaniel Ella, tortoise and parrots. I look forward to meeting everyone when you visit the Sanctuary.
Kind regards,
Abi”.
