Holly Thompson

Holly Thompson

Holly Thompson, WA Committee Member

Holly Thompson has been a zoo keeper at Perth Zoo since 2002 and on the ARP committee since 2004. Holly's main passion lies with Gibbons however after being to Sumatra in 2004 and seeing the beautiful Sumatran Rhino at Way Kambas she has a great deal of respect and admiration for these beautiful creatures. Having worked with the Southern White Rhino at Perth Zoo and seeing them in Africa, Rhinos are also one of her passions. The Asian Rhino species are often forgotten or not known about. It is so important to protect them and educate people about them and gain awareness for the threats they face. Holly hopes to visit India and see the Indian Rhino. We must remember that saving one species saves many more and the Asian Rhinos do not deserve to become forgotten.
