Audiences have included:

One of the workshops is a component for the Victoria University wildlife husbandry course and training has been delivered to Industry groups such as construction site employees to address wildlife issues that may be encountered on development sites. Presentations have also been provided interstate at a number of National Wildlife conferences.

Current programmes include:

  • General Wildlife Rescue Techniques
  • Fireground Rescue
  • Advanced Kangaroo Rescue


Presentation material can be customized to suit a particular audience or regional requirement or to address works procedures detailed within Environmental Management Plans.
