Some time ago I read about the work that June and Lloyd Butcher were doing with breeding Bilbys and rescuing fauna. I contacted June and we were able to visit her wildlife rehabiltation centre at Gooseberry Hill called Kanyana. Along with a group of about 140 volunteers Kanyana is doing a fantastic job.

The superb camouflage of the Tawny Frogmouth always impresses me

Pam went to the kangaroo nursery and was quickly asked to help feed some.
The downstairs area was setup with baskets of joeys waiting to be fed.
