Press Release 12/11/23: 

Meet Our New Operations Director!

Wildlife Images is temporarily closing its doors to reorganize and improve internal systems and embrace new ideas we share with our partners at the Australia Zoo. 

To do this, we hired an amazing new Operations Director, Amy Webb. 

With years of experience working for various non-profits and prior expertise in strategic partnerships, fundraising, and managing events, Amy brings knowledge and skills to steer Wildlife Images toward success and growth. Her dedication to improving processes and streamlining workflows has led to significant cost savings and increased efficiency in her previous roles and current role as Event Planner for Rogue Winterfest. 

Amy will focus on creating a more sustainable operating structure. She will also focus on building solid relationships within our community and expanding our reach to further the mission of Wildlife Images. We are confident she will bring valuable insight and fresh ideas to enhance our operations, streamline processes, and fuel our conservation efforts.

Amy is joining us as we regroup and hire a new front-of-house staff who embraces the new ideas and changes moving forward. The change in front of house staff is what forced us to close the park until February. 

During this closure, our wildlife rehabilitation clinic is open for wild patient admissions seven days a week, with 100% of our animal services team still caring for our in-house residents and patients. This hiatus allows the animal services team to focus entirely on our mission of saving wildlife while we train a new front-of-house staff.

Wildlife Images and the Siddon family have been pillars of the community for over 40 years. Over the past few years, J. David Siddon’s legacy has been removed from the park and discounted. The Siddon’s legacy will again be celebrated at the park.

We will reopen again in February, better than ever! Those community members with memberships will receive a two-month extension to make up for the time we are closed. Look for the grand re-opening announcement on our social media and website. We are grateful for the support of this community while we transition.
