ABOUT ANNE MARIE
NATUROPATH/HERBALIST & WILDLIFE CARER
My name is Anne-Marie, I am a registered Naturopath/herbalist and have been a Wildlife carer since the year 2000. I mainly care for Macropods and Flying-foxes. I have also cared for Possums, Bandicoots, Birds and many other species of native animal.
I love Nature and caring for wildlife is what makes me happy in life. Although caring for each animal is different and does not always have a happy ending, it is an act of love and kindness that makes a difference and transforms you for life.
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.
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 and overseas with great success.
From my Wildlife Carer's experience, I have gained a useful knowledge that I love to share with other passionate people. I have also developed a range of handmade essential products like teats to feed wildlife orphans.
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.

In 2017, I moved to NSW to run a lime orchard with my husband. Life had its hardships and I am now living in Blue Knob, near Nimbin, caring for Wildlife and running this business of mine.
I am aware that caring for wildlife can create a huge amount of stress for carers. Thus, on this website, I aim to increase Wildlife Carers' success by:
sharing useful information/tips re care for wildlife.
offering Natural Remedies to treat specific conditions
selling useful products at an affordable price.
I am happy to use my knowledge of herbal medicine and nutrition, plus my experience with wildlife in order to help animals whenever possible.
