Hey everyone! My name is Chris Gorman and I’m from Novato, CA. I graduated with a B.S. in Evolution, Ecology, and Biodiversity from UC Davis. I’ve always had a passion for working with wild animals and knew from a young age that I would follow my dream to make it a career. Crocodiles have always been my favorite animal (Steve Irwin was my hero growing up), but I am a huge fan of every kind of animal out there! 2016 was an amazing summer when I worked at the Oakland Zoo as the commissary/night keeper intern. I worked with some truly amazing animals including baboons, elephants, tigers, tortoises, sun bears, and giraffes, as well as many other species. The fall seasons of 2016 and 2017 were spent working for Ducks Unlimited out in the Sacramento Valley helping study the effects of post-harvest treatments on the food supply for migrating waterfowl. In my spare time, I love adventuring to new places, playing various sports, spending Saturdays with the boys, and enjoying a beach lifestyle! Working at Sea Turtle, Inc. this summer was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to continue through the winter!
