Thomas Wampula, and Walter Hödl. Amphibian and Reptile
THOMAS WAMPULA has worked since
1996 at the Vienna Zoo Schönbrunn. He started as Animal Care Taker at the Aquarium-house and later transferred to
the “Rainforest house” where his first and fore¬most interests were amphibians, reptiles, and fish. His duties and
responsibilities included the arrangement and design of terraria and the maintenance of facilities. In 2007 he
became a member of the Department of Technology and Project Development at the zoo and now is engaged in planning,
design, and development of viviaria in the entire Vienna Zoo. The foot-flagging frog project has repeatedly led him
to Borneo, where he assisted in field work, capture, transport, and care of frogs, and at the zoo he managed the
construction of the breeding facility.
