History as a Wildlife Carer
I have been a Wildlife carer since the year 2000 and mainly care for Macropods and Flying-foxes. I have also cared for Possums, Bandicoots, Birds and many other species of native animal.
In 2005 I established a Nature Refuge near Kilkivan in SE Qld. For the next eleven years I reared, rehabilitated and released many animals on the property which is protected with a Nature Conservation Agreement with the Qld Government. In order to help fund the care of the animals I began my wildlife supplies business. I offer quality products at affordable prices.
In 2017 I moved to NSW and now only occasionally care for wildlife as I am busy running a lime orchard. My partner and I split up since moving. Our nature refuge is still on the market. When it sells I will be relocating again and will reassess if I will get back into full time wildlife care.
I qualified as a Naturopath/Herbalist in 2000 after completing a four year course at ACNM in Brisbane Qld.
Over the years, I have developed many herbal formulas specifically for the common ailments that affect wildlife in care e.g. thrush, e-coli and associated gut problems.
My knowledge of herbal medicine and nutrition, plus my experience with wildlife has enabled me to treat hundreds of animals Australia wide. Have a look at the testimonial page for more info.
In 2016 I presented a paper at the Australian Widlife Conference in Melbourne on the treatment of gastrointestinal and other common disorders affecting wildlife in care which outlines the treatments I use on wildlife using natural medicine.
