Frank Mikula



From an early age Frank had a keen interest in birds and in particular Raptors. Spending many hours with binoculars in hand, he enjoyed time spent observing birds of prey in the wild and when he finally came to working with birds at Australia Zoo he thought his dreams had come true.

Whilst at the zoo Frank was able to develop his skills with animal, and in particular bird conditioning techniques which lead him to working with free flight display birds. These skills he has now converted to his raptor rehabilitation and the free flying of birds to prepare them for release back to the wild.

Through working closely with the Australian Wildlife Hospital, Australia Zoo and being a Director of Wombat Awareness Organisation, Frank has been lucky enough to expand his wildlife rehabilitation and handling skills to nearly all forms of Australian wildlife.
