Juan Paolo Magno

Animal Trainer

I am a man of few words but am easy to get along with and have a good sense of humour. I’ve always liked working with animals because of their intelligence and the challenges they present me to overcome as a keeper and trainer. It is a privilege to work with so many different species.

My professional background:

My journey in animal care began 14 years ago at Ocean Adventure in the Philippines where I worked with False Killer Whales, multiple species of dolphin and Patagonian SeaLions. In 2016, I moved to Dubai and started a new adventure at Dubai Safari training hornbills, macaws, birds of prey and small mammals. I also worked within the ungulate department. I then joined WorldWide Zoo Consultants in 2019.

What I do on my spare time:

I am very big basketball fan and enjoy playing with my friends after work. I also love running, playing video games and watching movies.
