About Our Speaker, Michael Kirby:

Michael Kirby

I’ve been working with the Smithsonian National Zoo for 7 years now. I started as a volunteer at the Amazonia building and continued on as a volunteer with the Department of nutrition/Commissary.  I later started as an employee with the Commissary and then transferred to Amazonia.  I grew up in Maryland where I took interest in the world around me.  I spent a lot of time learning all about the wildlife around me as a kid and my passion for animals grew.  I took a particular interest in reptiles and amphibians and have assisted with several citizen scientist projects over the years with Maryland and Virginia including. I enjoy going herping, birding, scuba diving, and exploring new places.
