We purchased our 27 acre bushland property adjoining the Hepburn Regional Park specifically for the running of the wildlife shelter and plan to establish a permanent and lasting treatment and care facility for the wildlife community in the region. We put everything we have into wildlife care including our income, time, our personal space, scientific training and emotional investment. The continued growth in the demand for our service means that we both now work more than full time on shelter activities alone. The shelter receives no government funding and could not run without community support through volunteer help and donations.
For us this work is a great privilege and passion. Through our work at the shelter and with Wildlife Victoria we are always striving to increase society’s awareness and knowledge about Australia’s unique and often mysterious wildlife and to improve the quality of the care we, and others, give them.
