Mark Amey

Life long exotic and domestic Animal Keeper, Breeder, Zoologist Environmentalist, Conservationist, who has gained extensive knowledge and understanding of Animals with particular interest in those in my care. With a comprehension of filming and photography I can ensure that the desired shots can be achieved through experience, knowledge and training while minimizing anxiety.

Animal ambassador's used for off site events such as animal educational encounters are calm and interactive and I try to enthuse my audience to appreciate and love animals, if we as humans love it we stand a better chance at appreciating and protecting it.

More About Me



A big thank you for all of your help and hard work during the photo shoot for our Snake book over the last two days. We got some really fantastic shots - at least 3 or 4 (and in some cases many more) for each snake - and it's going to be a difficult decision to pick just one. We really appreciated your skill in handling the snakes and coaxing them into the right positions, but also your patience in dealing with our own endless demands. I also cannot thank you enough for the additional snakes that you provided, at no extra cost. This was above and beyond anything that we expected or could have asked for, and I have no doubt that the images we took on this shoot will be used for many years to come. I very much hope that we will be able to work together on other projects in the future.

Duncan Turner, Project Art Editor DK Publishing

This is just a quick email to say a Huge Thank You to everyone for all your hard work and commitment over the last several months. It has been a long haul but the final product is amazing because of everyone's dedication to the show. So from everyone at 'Will', Thank You. We couldn't have done it without you!

Edward Rastelli-Lewis, Production Co-Ordinator

Thank you so much for all your brilliant work on Ratburger - Armitage and his friends were just amazing and the way you handled them all and guided the children throughout the filming was so professional and just superb. We really did enjoy you being on set with us - I really hope you enjoyed the shoot too. Hopefully we can work together again.

Joanna Hanley, Producer

Thank you so much for coming into school and talking about all of the animals. It was fascinating for the students and myself! It was so inspirational. It seems you are fortunate to have found your true vocation and it shines through. I will make sure that we have the budget for another visit next year. Thank you for making time to coma and see us. Two of the students, as a direct result of your talk, are now looking to gain practical experience with a marine research centre and are busy organising their trip for this summer.


I would like to thank you from all of us here in the CBBC Summer social Team, we have had a phenomenal response from our 31,000 visitors to the event across the weekend and some exceptionally positive reviews. Yourself and lovely assistant did a fantastic job throughout the weekend and we have received such positive feedback, you were very popular with the crowds and we were really pleased with how engaged the children were with the animals. We still have staff approaching us now with such positive comments. We could not have achieved this without your support so thank you so much for helping us make the event the success it was.

Nastassja Wallis, PMA CBBC Events

Our members really enjoyed listening to you today and I just wanted to say a big "thank-you" to you for coming and talking to our Group. Hope we see you again soon.


Many thanks again for finding time in your busy schedule to pay us a visit with your fascinating animals. The pupils LOVED it! They learnt some wonderful facts that I'm sure will stay with them for a very long time.

Helen Proudfoot, Phase 4 Leader

Thank you again very much indeed for the fabulous session you laid on for us at our District Beaver Party on Saturday. Every single one of the one hundred Beaver Scouts who attended got so much out of it - and all the adults too! It was just amazing! I don't think anyone else I have ever encountered has been able to keep such a big group of Beaver Scouts spell-bound for over an hour! So many of the Leaders who had brought their Beavers along came up to me at the end to say how fantastic it had been. And, as you rightly predicted, we all learnt a lot - children and adults alike.

Heather Jones, ADC Beaver Scouts

Thank you so much for your return visit to us in Devon with some of the most wonderful creatures that nearly made their way home with Chris! We all loved the rhino rat snake in particular. And that poison dart frog..And they behaved better than the octopus at the weekend that made a run for it and was found escaping down the table! Your animals are always in top condition and your knowledge and passion makes it a pleasure to work with you.

Lucy Bowden, Director, Chris Packham's Animal Einsteins

Just wanted to drop you a message and say thank you for all your work and help on Hoard. You've been fantastic to work with!
