Meet our volunteers 


Charlie 'Chab' Davis 

Charlie is one of the youngest members of the KOA team. Joining in 2016 at the very beginning, Charlie has turned into a real asset to the centre and helps with shows, experience days and much more. As well as having a passion for birds- Charlie has a vast amount of knowledge about other animals...especially millipedes! 
Charlie is unique, interesting and a very valuable member of our team and we can't wait to see what else she will achieve! 

Chelsea Whytock​ 


Chelsea started volunteering at the centre in 2016. Whilst studying hard for her animal management diploma- she still finds the time to come in and help with the animals. Chelsea soon learned how to handle birds well and began helping with the experience days and shows! We find Chelsea to be a great team player as well as a very hard working and dedicated individual with a great understanding of the natural world. Her goal is to work in the veterinary industry, a role which she would be very well suited for.

Chris Whytock 


Chris is a fantastic addition to the Kent Owl Academy team. After starting at a very groggy time of year, he showed true determination and continued to come in and graft up to 4 days a week! When Chris started volunteering he was very quiet and reserved. However, after becoming a regular at the KOA he is now a real confident and essential part of the team. We have enjoyed watching Chris' journey so far and he has continued to surprise us. We can't wait to see what he will achieve this year. 

Hayley Rose 


Hayley already had some animal experience when she came to volunteer at the centre. This sat her in good stead and she clearly had a great sense of empathy for all living things. Having done work experience abroad with animals and working in the past as an entertainer, Hayley was a great candidate for a KOA volunteer. Hayley's determination is very clear and she is a very outgoing and friendly person. We look forward to seeing her progress into a dynamic show presenter and experience day host.
