Zoo Keeper in Dublin Zoo - TEDxDúnLaoghaire 2021 Speaker
Gerry Creighton is now perhaps best known as the man who is 'the human voice of the Elephant' having followed his early love of animals as a boy to become a third generation Zoo Keeper in Dublin, growing up perhaps with Dublin Zoo and all the animals there as his extended family. Over the last 36 years he has been travelling the world, sharing his passion and understanding of how best this vanishing, endangered species can be cared for to ensure their continued existence. His work has evolved with the development of practical and holistic approaches to improving better care for elephants, As a global elephant care consultant, Gerry travels extensively in the hope his collaborative work will inspire future generations to work and care for elephants in a way which the emotional needs and physical wellbeing of elephants are met . In his talk, 'the elephant in the room' will take centre stage.
