More about Thomas
I have worked with exotic animals in one form or another since 1985. I have worked as a zoo keeper/manager in zoos and aquariums in three different countries. I have also been involved in fieldwork with animals around the world, primarily with endangered species, because I understand the need to protect our most sensitive species before it is too late. I currently live in New Zealand, where I am focusing my energies on native endangered species, primarily birds. Lately, I have been spending the bulk of my time working with kokako (Callaeas wilsoni), helping with censuses and translocations. In between fieldwork I can be found making some money on the side running a business with board games and tabletop role-playing games. In the end, it always comes back to the animals though; many of my games have a very strong animal/biology theme to them. If you are interested in the sort of work I have done in the past or are currently involved in, check out my blog where I will post thoughts about these sorts of things and more. I hope you enjoy the website!
