Meet our dedicated Sanctuary team members who care for the 152 residents at the Sanctuary as well as rescuing injured wildlfe.
Hello I am Kim,
I am the Sanctuary Manager at Idlewild Animal Sanctuary. Animals have been my love and passion for as long as I can remember. Since leaving University my work has involved many different animal related roles including; a wildlife hospital, conservation work in South Africa, Sound Therapy for pets, a Behaviour Counsellor and a range of rehoming centres/animal sanctuaries. I joined Idlewild Animal Sanctuary as Sanctuary Manager in May 2017. At the sanctuary, I am responsible for overseeing the care and well-being of the animals and managing our team of staff and volunteers. I became a Trustee for the sanctuary in 2019 and now help with the overall running of the charity at a board level. I am responsible for overseeing the care and well-being of the animals and managing our team of staff and volunteers.
In my spare time I love to spend time with my own pets. I have a Rescue German Shepherd Troulloi, Two Ragdolls Ebony and Marmaduke and 2 foster cats from the sanctuary Ragamuffin and Shelby. I also enjoy camping, kayaking, walking and generally being in the great outdoors.
Jane is a Mum of two and a Teacher and kindly volunteers her spare time at the Idlewild Animal Sanctuary. She takes care of the animals at the Sanctuary.
