About Me

Hello! Well how can I sum this up?!
For starters my name is Willy Cotto, I live in Miami, FL USA. I was born in the USA to Cuban parents. I speak English and Spanish, and piccolo italiano! I am passionate about wildlife conservation, and anything that has to do with preserving our planet, and its amazing inhabitants. I work at Zoo Miami as a Wildlife Show Trainer and Curatorial Intern. I have an amazing job! I train animals and share the natural world with our visitors every day! I have also worked as part of our education team and exhibits team! On my spare time I volunteer with different organizations such South Florida Chapter of the American Association of Zookeepers, Center of the Great Apes and most recently The Marine Mammal Conservancy. Formerly I have worked in different capacities at Parrot Jungle, Monkey Jungle, The DuMond Conservancy for Primates and Tropical Forest, and Florida International University's Southeastern Environmental Research Center in the Genetics Laboratory. Of all the animals I have worked with orangutans have had the biggest impact in inspiring me to protect the natural world for generations to come! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
