As the face of Nat Geo Wild in Australia, Ben Britton gets closer to creatures great and small every day for a living.
Passionate about wildlife, Britton believes strongly in conservation through education. He has appeared in a number of documentaries and on various television programs throughout his 20 years of professional experience in animal husbandry and wildlife conservation that have taken him across the world, from reserves in Africa to sanctuaries in Asia.
In addition to his on-air role, Britton is the Director of Wild Animal Encounters, an outreach program providing educational talks, displays and demonstrations of both native and exotic animals to the general public.
Previously Ben worked as a zookeeper in some of the leading zoological institutions both in Australia and overseas, including Sydney's Taronga Zoo and the Australian Reptile Park.
