Meet the team leading conservation education at Kyabram Fauna Park.

Isabella Paholek


Growing up, I never had that dinosaur phase, instead I had an animal one which never ended. From camping trips to caring for wildlife, I grew up experiencing and appreciating nature. My love of the environment led me to do a Bachelor of Outdoor Education, followed by a Master of Teaching (P-12). I am passionate about creating a desire for learning. I often wonder what would happen if everyone made small positive changes, what big impact that could have on the world.

I hope to be a driver for change and bring as many people along as possible.

I always knew from a young age that I wanted to work around animals. After spending a lot of my childhood in nature, my passion led to a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Wildlife and Marine Biology.

After accepting my first zookeeper role, I fell in love with educating school groups that came to the park and seeing the excitement in both adults and kids when they see an animal for the first time.

I love being able to combine my passion for education with my love of wildlife teaching at Kyabram Fauna Park.
