Chase Pirtle has been obsessed with the natural world for as long as he can remember. He began his animal career at a young age volunteering at the Moonridge Animal Park in Big Bear California.
Since then, Chase worked at a wolf sanctuary and received his Florida FWC venomous license, as well as his authorized gopher tortoise agent permit. Chase completed a two-year animal science program in New Jersey, attended a forestry and wildlife ecology program in South Carolina, and graduated from the Santa Fe Teaching Zoo in Florida. He is now the Animal Care Specialist and Habitat Manager at Ashton Biological Preserve.
