About Aisa Coco

I was born in the Nederlands and at the age of 9 I moved with my family to Spain. In Spain I grew up surrounded by different animals, like dogs, cats, donkeys and sheep.


That is why, at a very young age, I discovered that I wanted to spend my life surrounded by animals, taking care of them. When the time came I started to study veterinary medicine, but then I realized that this wasn’t for me.

I stopped studying veterinary medicine and I started to work as a volunteer at Stichting AAP, rescue centre for monkeys in the Nederlands and here I fell in love with this kind of job and with monkeys. After that I traveled and worked in different countries and parts of the world, like Portugal and South Africa.


If you are still reading and got at this point, after telling you my biography, you are probably more interested in what I can do for you.

What can I do?

  • Work with different animal species.
  • Specialized in primates.
  • Basic veterinary care.
  • Fluent in Spanish, English and Dutch.
  • More than 4 years of experience as a caretaker.
  • Experience in quarantine and sickbay.
  • Knowledge about animal diets.
  • Care of sick and injured animals.
  • Quick learner.
  • Care of babies.
  • Animal behaviour.
  • Animal trapping.
  • Making and designing enrichment.
  • Experience in natural therapies.
  • Crisis managment.
  • Team managment.
  • Environmental education.
  • Digital marketing.

Achivements

Modification of quarantine protocol

Krazy World Zoo in Portugal. In this place I updated their quarantine protocol for primates, making it safe for animals and staff.

Integrating several vervet monkeys into bigger troops

Vervet Monkey Foundation (VMF) in South Africa. The monkeys I have been integrating were babies, juveniles and adults. The integration depends on the monkeys behavior, background and age, so I had to adapt these integration according the individual.

Critical care of babies and adult vervet monkey

Vervet Monkey Foundation (VMF) in South
Africa. At the VMF we received several time critical care monkeys from care crushes, heat strokes, pellet guns, etc.

Training new staff/volunteers

Krazy World, AAP and VMF: I have been training volunteers and new staff members in all my previous jobs.

Creating new deworming protocol

Krazy World Zoo in Portugal: in this place I designed a new
deworming protocol for the animals, that included reptiles, lemurs, monkeys and mammals.

Designed new enrichment for animals

AAP in the Nederlands: designed a new enrichment
item for the minks in the mammal department. For this I had to know the animal behavior and
natural instinct. It was also important to create something save, easy to clean and easy to give or put in the enclosure.

Deworming of monkey groups of 50 individuals

Vervet Monkey Foundation (VMF) in South Africa: the VMF has 12 big troops. I was responsible of 4 of them and one of my tasks was deworming these troops every 3 or 6 months. For this you need to know every individual monkey and their food preferences, because it is not easy to give meds to a suspicious monkey.

Designing new enclosures for different species

AAP and VMF: in these two places I was able
to design new enclosures for monkeys, coatis, raccoons, foxes, etc. I learned to adapt the
enclosures to the animals, some of them were old and needed easier structures to climb; every
species needs the perfect sleeping spot, etc.

If this is what you need you are in the right place.
