Jackie Bray


Jackie Bray is finishing her Masters in Zoology at Miami University in Project Dragonfly’s Advanced Inquiry Program studying conservation biology and inquiry-based learning. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts in Middle Grades Education with minors in English and mathematics from Northern Kentucky University. She currently works as an environmental educator and avian trainer at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden.

Jackie is passionate about avian conservation and the endemic parrot species of New Zealand, especially the kea. Her leadership has dramatically increased U.S. support for kea conservation and has helped form international collaborations that strive to improve the zoological management of this species. Through grant writing, keeper chats, animal encounters, and collaborations with other conservation organizations like the Kea Conservation Trust, she has helped raise thousands of dollars that funded significant positive impacts on wild kea populations.
