TDevils and Bandicoots – How Zoos can deliver Compassionate Conservation – Jennifer Gray, Director of the Melbourne Zoo
Jenny Gray, the formidably able CEO of Zoos Victoria, combines an impressive corporate background with a genuine passion for conservation.
Her move from the corporate sector into the zoo world – she was CEO of the electronic banking division at FNB Corp Bank- was the result of an epiphany when, disillusioned with making money for rich people with whom she didn’t share a value system, she realised she would prefer to be using her abilities to do some good in the world.
