Kelsey McCord is the Curator of Animals at World Bird Sanctuary.
Kelsey’s love of animals started at an early age, at her father’s veterinary clinic. She sought out a degree at University of Missouri-Columbia with animals. Kelsey has done field work with song birds and waterfowl in many places around the country.
She has worked in observational studies, nest monitoring, and bird banding in Columbia Missouri, the Ozarks, Arizona, and Puerto Rico. Kelsey worked her way back home to St. Louis and started volunteering at the World Bird Sanctuary. Shortly after starting her volunteer work, she was hired as a staff member.
Kelsey is very passionate about working with and caring for birds. Kelsey could talk about our birds all day long!
