Mary Grant 2001-current Seabird & Waterbird Coordinator
Mary has always shown her preference for our Seabirds, waterbirds & Wading birds. She has been our Seabird Coordinator, Mentor and Trainer at Rescue & Transport training days and thru her bird id and capture techniques manuals.
Mary was never too shy to grace the camera for newspaper articles in support of her beloved birds.
Thanks to Ron Potter (her partner in seabirds) for the collection of these newspaper
articles over the years.
Nothing gets Mary running faster than a Bird in trouble, …. well that and a good looking Aborist.
Mary, from all the wildlife you have had a hand in helping and all the members who see you continue to help wildlife 24 / 7, We thank you.
Corrina Lever 2006 – current Macropod and Bird Coordinator
The face behind the action! Corrina works tirelessly, 7 days and most nights a week to protect, rescue and transport our beautiful wildlife.
More than can be reasonably expected of a volunteer coordinator. Corrina has reared countless marsupials over her many years of dedication
When she’s not handling animals, she is fighting battles with various government departments on their behalf.
Not to forget the tireless work to protect and care for our endangered bush stone-curlew. We thank you.
Ron Potter 2003-2023 Rescue & Transport
During Ron’s time at TVWC its easier to list what he HASN’T DONE – Phones !! But even then he would grace us all at the phonie meetings and was dubbed an honorary phonie.
But to list them you would have Rescuer, transporter, overnight carer, after hours emergencies, committee member, R&T coordinator, mentor & trainer, seabird raptor turtle and bat rescuer, curlew chief, turtle rangler, events helper, front of house at meetings, boat skipper, tackle bin coordinator and so much more.
His smiling face was also seen at every event and always there to lend a helping hand.
His 7 day a week help, saw no holidays missed, with his always ready to jump in his truck or boat and rescue the animals in need.
From all your furred and feathered friends, and the other ones, here and gone, we’re all real proud you called us “Mate”. Thank you.
