Angelina Martelli

Veterinarian Nurse

After graduating from Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology in 2003 and gaining experience working at a small animal clinic in the city, Angelina moved to Wellington to join our team in September 2009. She is delighted to now be working with some of the most endangered and amazing animals in the world. Her favourite moment at the Zoo so far was when Ishah the Red panda sat on her knee as she patted him and hand-fed him pears and grapes. Besides Ishah, Angelina’s favourite animal at the Zoo is Sasa the sun bear, for her beauty and friendly nature.
