David Watts

Curator of Aquatics

David has over 23 years’ experience in the public aquarium and aquaculture industries. He has worked with many different species of aquatic mammals, fish, birds, reptiles and invertebrates over that time.

David’s career highlights have been establishing and maintaining a little penguin colony and developing a weedy sea dragon display during his time employed at Sydney Aquarium. He has also co-authored a paper on weedy sea dragon abundance and distribution in Botany Bay.

Despite having the privilege of working with a lot of different species over the years, David still thinks that people are some of his favourite animals to work with.
