Chad Staples is a Director of the Australian Wildlife Parks Foundation, and Managing Director of Australian Wildlife Parks, incorporating Featherdale Sydney Wildlife Park in Western Sydney, home to the collection of Australian animals in the world, and Mogo Wildlife Park, on the NSW South Coast, and Hunter Valley Wildlife Park.  Together both parks represent the largest captive collection in Australia, and Australian Wildlife Parks has imminent plans to further expand and enrich its collection in next 1-3 years.

Zookeeper Chad is passionate beyond measure for the animals in his care and all wildlife, and has taken the opportunity to use his profile on social media to share intimate moments with the parks' animals to encourage all of us to have a closer affinity with animals.
