Aspinall left school at 16 to join her grandfather’s UK-based charity, The Aspinall Foundation, to rescue, rehabilitate, and protect wild animals. One day, Aspinall hopes to dethrone her father as chair, and her father is incredibly fond of the idea.

In the TikTok videos, Aspinall highlighted that train and tame animals but bond with them through pure love and trust:

“I have known him my whole life. The relationship is built on love and trust, not training or taming. His five sons we sent back to the wild.”
