Meet your wildlife rehabber! I received a message request asking about my journey so I thought I’d just do a post 😉
Im Karlee and I’m a registered DBCA wildlife carer and I solely run and own sequin lodge at the ripe old age of 20. I started caring for animals at 11, yes eleven. It all started with a pair of shelducks who abandoned their ducklings in our paddock and never came back... after begging and begging my mother gave in and let me look after them and look were successful released into the wild with the guidance of a family friend who was a vet nurse. I continued raising abandoned ducklings until 13 until I was taken under the wing of an experienced wildlife carer. From then until 18 I trained under my mentor and then when solo. I then established Sequin Lodge and at 19 i became DBCA registered and here I am today! I’ve always had a love for all creatures great and small and with the support of family, other carers and DBCA I’ve become the wildlife carer I am today 😊
I now own my own sanctuary and volunteer for numerous wildlife organizations include DBCA, WA seabird rescue, Healing Hands Wildlife Care, FAWNA, Wildlife Care Bunbury and Bridgetown Wildlife Rescue.
I have animals in care 24/7 and quite often find myself taking birds to work 😅
I would like to personally thank everyone who has made this possible for me and of course all of my page followers ❤️ #wildlife #duck #wildlifephotography #wildliferescue #wildliferefuge #wildliferehab #animals #animalphotography #animalsofinstagram #australia #westernaustralia #endangeredspecies #bird #birds #birdsofinstagram #duck #birdphotography #possum #duck #reptile #lizard #seagull #kangaroo #owl #birdsofprey #fauna #wildlifesanctuary #photography #wildliferehabilitation
