Craig was born and raised in one of Australia's biggest ever circus families... Bullens. Craig has toured with his family's own circus and many other circuses both Nationally and Internationally for over 40 yrs, since he was a baby.
Craig’s father and family established eight drive-through Safari Parks (the only ones of their kind in Australasia) with Craig having spent time in managerial positions at over half of them. He has extensive experience with elephants, lions, tigers, pumas, leopards, camels, zebras, cheetahs, chimpanzees, monkeys, baboons, orangutans, bears, rhinoceros, giraffes, wolves, alligators, bison, water buffalo and also with domestic animals.
Craig's exciting life has taken him to work in almost every town in Australia, some several times over which has made his knowledge of Australia very impressive. The other countries he has worked in include Africa, America, Mexico, Europe (France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Poland, Serbia), Asia (Philippines, Thailand, Japan, China, Hong Kong), The Pacific Islands, The Middle East (Saudi Arabia) and New Zealand. Travelling is in Craig’s blood and this together with his desire to be with animals means that his work as a world class animal trainer continues to make him shine!
