What you'll do
My Koi Keeper Experience is living the extraordinary lifestyle of being a Koi Keeper at the Koi Whisperer Sanctuary & Japanese Gardens. You will experience our imported Japanese Koi, learn Koi Rescue procedures, feed, net, measure, understand Holistic Koi Care, photograph and understand more about these amazing colorful fish, their water and our aquaculture and sustainable environment. An unforgettable experience ending with a photo op with you and the Koi!!
Hi, I'm M. After 14 years working with Koi, I founded the Koi Whisperer Sanctuary after rescuing a Koi in need. I decided I had to do something to help these amazing, colorful and intuitive fish that I love. In helping save the Koi and raising awareness for them, I discovered that the Koi are actually enlightening and helping so many people. This is my something, this is why I do what I do.
