About Michelle Thomas

Michelle has been caring for wildlife since 1990 when a tiny ringtail possum was handed to her to raise by a flatmate. However Michelle's mother Eleanor Stoneman would have to ultimately be responsible for her interest in helping wildlife when, at two years old, Michelle watched her mother rescue and subsequently raise a kookaburra chick after being attacked by Magpies. Together they attempted to raise many young orphaned baby birds, usually blown out of nests.

About John Thomas

John has been at Michelle's side since she started caring for wildlife and has been rescuing, building enclosures, collecting browse (leaf) and helping to nurse animals back to health. John often is called upon by Michelle to help with rescues and releases and has a special soft spot for the many Wombat and Koala Joey's they have raised over the years.
