Christine has had a love and passion for animals since she was a child. As a child she would visit many zoos, and enjoyed watching and studying the animals. She would enjoy the many educational talks at the different  zoos, and learning  how they were trying to help certain species of animals that were fighting the threat of extinction. Christine decided she wanted to help animals, and to teach people how important  these amazing creatures that she herself loved so much.

Today Christine and her husband Mark own and run the Luray Zoo. She as well as Mark maintain ,feed, and care for the 250+ animals that call Luray Zoo home.Christine always is out and about at the zoo, and is available to answer any questions!  Christine hopes everyone enjoys all the animals and is as excited to see them as she is every single day, to learn about them, and how to save them so future generations can enjoy their great splendor.

"The world in itself is fragile, as well as the inhabitants that live on it, but I believe through conservation and education we can still make this world a great place for humans and animals to coexist together, and to save many species of animals from vanishing forever." Christine Kilby.
