Leah Tyndall is the Director of External Educational Programs at World Bird Sanctuary.
Before attending an Ornithology class at Earlham College, she had very little interest in birds. In fact, her love of birds did not truly begin until her internship at World Bird Sanctuary. After her internship, she was invited to supervise the 2008 Grant’s Farm zoo show program, and then she was hooked!
Since 2009, she has participated in 8 offsite zoo show programs and supervised five of them. During the winter off season, she supervises World Bird Sanctuary’s behind-the-scenes area where we care for and train birds. To think, growing up she would skip the aviaries when she went to visit zoos! Never, ever again!
