Our Team

Alison and Ian Shankly

Alison is the anchorperson, and actual owner of Clarks's Little Ark. She will mostly be the first person who arrives every morning to open The Ark, feed all the animals and be ready to welcome our many visitors.  This is by no means an easy routine, but you'll find her here over 300 days each year, 7 days a week.  


Nik Burns

Nik is a stalwart volunteer at The Ark, and is at her happiest when she's mucking out the stables, generally doing whatever's necessary to look after the welfare of the animals, and maintaining the fabric of the farm.  She can be regularly seen up to her knees in blocked drains, scrubbing and cleaning.


Jennifer Pagan,
Chair - The Friends of Clark's Little Ark

Jennifer is the hard working Chair of the Friends of Clark's Little Ark, who legally lease the premises and land.  She and her team of 'friends', trustees and volunteers, oversee a wide range of fund raising activities, grant applications and co-ordination roles. None of them hold back when the work needs done.
