Course Description

In this Instructor Video Series, we chat with Nick Petropoulos, owner-operator of Victorian wildlife company, Wicked Wildlife. Australia is fortunate to be home to some of the most diverse and unique wildlife on earth, yet in the last 200 years we have lost 55 species to extinction, with a further 241 on the endangered or critically endangered list. While it’s easy as one person to say “what difference can I make” we strongly believe every cause, every idea, every positive change throughout history has started with a single person, and the more “single people” we have out there pushing for the conservation of our natural world, the greater our chances of saving not only the world around us, but perhaps our own species as well.
