Alicia Shelley

Alicia Shelley is a zookeeper at the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium. Being involved with PBI for close to a decade has been a perfect fit for her, allowing her to share the stories of polar bears in the wild and make the connection to their cousins in zoos. This includes four years as a volunteer with our Field Ambassador program, where she shares information about polar bears with guests on Tundra Buggies. She finds the experience incredibly uplifting because people who view polar bears in the wild are inspired to go home and become Arctic Ambassadors by spreading the word about what we can do to keep polar bears around for future generations.
