Anna Ryder-Richardson is one of Britain’s best-loved interior designers, presenting the BBC’s ever-popular Changing Rooms for over 10 years.
She has since worked on a number of shows, including House Invaders, Staying Put and Trading Spaces, however, none of these had the same mainstream success as Changing Rooms, which led her to consider a change in career, and in 2008, she bought Manor House Wildlife Park in South Wales which sparked her career as a wildlife presenter.
Anna’s experiences running the wildlife park have been documented on many TV shows, including Channel 4’s Chaos At The Zoo which followed Anna turning the wildlife park into one of Pembrokeshire’s most successful tourist attractions.
Anna also spent 2 weeks in the Australian jungle on ITV’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here in 2007.
In 2015, Anna set up a charity called ‘The Nature Foundation’ to transport neglected lions from an abandoned zoo in Gyumri to Peak Wildlife Park. She continues to support animal foundations and charities through her work and fundraising.
As a mother, zookeeper and business owner, Anna can bring warmth, relatability and humour to your corporate video or commercial.
