Shelley Lozano. Speaker, Presenter & Author

About Me

Shelley Lozano started her professional career as a dancer and then formed her own act of limbo dancing and fire-eating.  While working in the United Arab Emirates, she soon learnt the art of Middle-Eastern belly dance which she still performs and teaches.  For many years she worked as a DJ and also performed a magic/illusion act.  She has experience as a compere, speaker and presenter, managed an entertainment agency for ten years, has written various articles for magazines and appeared on numerous radio and television programmes.

 Shelley has studied big cats, supported several conservation projects and has an advanced certificate in feline behaviour and psychology with a diploma in big cat studies.
With a life-long interest in wildlife and a passion for big cats, Shelley grew up reading books and watching wildlife documentaries and programmes on the natural world and has met and been inspired by the work of Sir David Attenborough, wildlife artist David Shepherd, Virginia McKenna and Jill Robinson of Animals Asia.
