Craig Thorburn – Board Member

Regional Head of Marine Programs & Engagement Asia Pacific - SEA LIFE Aquariums

Working in the aquarium industry for over 24 years Craig has experience as an aquarist, diver, curator and aquarium consultant. Specialist areas of interest are life support systems, water quality and shark behaviour.

“I am a champion of conservation through inspiration and appreciation of our natural environments and see zoos and aquariums as instrumental in delivering these qualities to members of the public who are not fortunate enough to experience our natural world and wildlife first hand.

Our commitment to our animals continues to increase with evolving husbandry knowledge and this development is essential in inspiring an ever more critical visitor. This is a complementary process, the more we educate the more questions are asked of us.

As a board member of ZAA I am always available to be contacted with questions, queries or advice on the challenges our industry faces in the coming years."
