Darren Minier 
Executive Director, California Wolf Center, USA

"The animal care and welfare field are evolving to see animal caretakers in all their roles as professionals, especially worldwide as we redefine who is ‘essential’. Building this professionalism through education, compassion, and advocacy is what these platforms do. It’s critical! These worldwide platforms bring us together in ways most other organisations don’t, or can’t. What AnimalConcepts does is so important!"

Maria Rodeano DVM
Director Parco Zoo Punta Verde, Italy

"Sabrina Brando has worked with Parco Zoo Punta Verde for many years. We have been a member since the platform's inception in 2020. Today these 3 platforms support the zoo and staff to stay at the forefront of animal care and welfare as well as gaining access to human wellbeing support and conservation and sustainability-related content.

Marian van der Krift 
Teacher Animal Care
Zone College, Netherlands

"Without a doubt, I became a member the day it launched. Through this online platform, I can listen to experts from around the world, which is unique. What I really like is that it’s not limited to only a certain subject or a certain species. The more we know and understand about animals, the better we can take care of them. It also makes me a better animal care teacher."

Professor Hannah M. Buchanan-Smith
University of Stirling,

"Sabrina is a creative solution-finder; she takes time to understand the problem first. Drawing upon her vast experience, and deep understanding of what matters to individuals, she will inspire and help you find evidence-based approaches to create conditions that allow you and your animals to thrive."
