G'day mate! As the owner of REPCO I have many important jobs. Marketing, advertising, animal care, rescue and rehabilitation, filming wildlife shows, training law enforcement on how to handle dangerous animals, and ensuring all our clients are happy and taken care of. But my FAVORITE job of all is educating children about wildlife, and inspiring them to love nature and science. I want to spread the message that every one can make a difference and we are all important and special on this Earth.
