Donna Treby



After school, Donna started work as a veterinarian nurse and eventually started working at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary as a zookeeper and vet nurse.

While working she enrolled in a course on Captive Vertebrate Management and during this time she volunteered to assist with some research that was being done with the Northern Hairy-Nosed Wombats.

This convinced her that she wanted to help critically endangered wildlife and her research specialises on the Northern Hairy-Nosed Wombats.

In the field she is up early, around 5.30 am and tries to get as much work done before it gets too hot. The middle of the day is spent sorting through data and preparing to go back out to work at about 3 pm , and work through until dark.

Donna has shared her husbandry manual for the Southern Hairy-Nosed Wombat with Fourth Crossing Wildlife. Click on the link below to be directed to the manual.
