One of our newest additions to The Creature Teacher, Jon is originally from the small town of Hilo in the state of Hawaii. Growing up close to the ocean most of his life Jon has a love and passion for marine life, and enjoys getting the opportunity to educate others about the ocean. Jon studied at the University of Hawaii at Hilo earning a Bachelors in Marine Science, and has worked as a volunteer with NOAA, the Hawaii Marine Mammal Response Network, and the Pacific Aquaculture and Coastal Resource Center. Jon has enjoyed getting to know all of our animals at The Creature Teacher and his favorite is Thor, our Colombian Red-Tailed Boa Constrictor. Jon loves being a part of The Creature Teacher and having the opportunity to educate kids on the importance of all animals and what makes them unique and amazing. Jon currently lives in Fort Worth along with his wife Amanda and their cat Pua.
