Emma Cash



A qualified zoologist Emma is currently completing her PhD looking at the effects of captivity on behaviour in the Mountain Pygmy Possum.

Emma began wildlife caring over three years ago under the guidance of the Ashburton, Shangri La and Kingbilli Wildlife Shelter’s.

In 2009 Emma opened the Bungalook Creek Wildlife Shelter based in the foothills of the Mount Dandenongs in Victoria where over 150 animals are tended to each year.

As an active wildlife rescuer and carer she sees a variety of species come through her shelter, including possums and gliders, bats, wombats, eastern grey kangaroos, the odd bird, reptiles, koalas and her favourite - swamp wallabies.
