Mara’s love for animals all started when she was a teenager and found an injured pigeon that fell from a tree. Fast forward to Mara as a student at Moorpark College in the highly coveted Exotic Animal Training and Management Program. This program has something that no other college or program has in the world, a fully operational Zoo, which acts as the programs laboratory.
The Zoo is also open to the public on the weekends.
