Wildlife Heroes – Caring for Carers Podcast
The Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife has teamed up with podcast producer Gretchen Miller, wildlife carers and mental health experts to share stories and perspectives about climate worry, personal wellbeing, community conflict, catastrophic events, and supporting others. Australia’s 15,000+ wildlife volunteers work hard, under intense conditions. The Wildlife Heroes: Caring for Carers Podcast aims to start a mental health conversation to support our volunteers to look after themselves and each other.
Hearing from one another about how we express the journey of being a wildlife carer is fundamental form of sharing and connection which may help others make sense, or reflect on their own journeys. Suzy Nethercott-Watson, the Founder of Two Green Threads is grateful to be one of the guest speakers of the series (see Episode 3 below).
