This week we welcome Hope Carr. She is the Education Manager at Austin Zoo, as well as the founder and chairperson of the Texas Lobo Coalition, a non-profit dedicated to the restoration of the Mexican wolf to West Texas. Hope has been drawn to wild animals and wild places her entire life, and since earning her bachelor’s degree in Wildlife Conservation at Brigham Young University, she has been dedicated to teaching people all about the value of wildlife. Prior to her role at the Austin Zoo, Hope worked at Utah’s Hogle Zoo and the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium as an educator. We spend an amazing hour talking about how the unique Austin Zoo started off as a rescue. Then Hope talks about her experience with founding the Texas Lobo Coalition and efforts to preserve the Mexican wolf.
