Ryan Dagg

Outdoor Recreatrion Leader


I am a reliable and punctual team member, willing to grow and eager to contribute to team cohesion. With a passion for the outdoors and a love for the creatures that inhabit it, I am driven to learn whatever is required to ensure I grow and excel in the Animal Care Industry. My desire to learn and be challenged can be seen throughout the acquisition of 5 qualifications over the past 10 years, throughout various industries.

I have enthusiasm to grasp understanding of a task and motivation to acquire skills and knowledge in the felid. The skills that I have developed throughout my career might not directly transfer over to the Zookeeper Industry, however my caring, kind and devoted attitudes will be a valued addition to your team.

I am devoted to the business and team I am part of and will ensure that the most professional image is seen by customers when or wherever they look. The 10 years that I have served at my current employment is a testament to the passion and stable character that I will bring to your workplace.
