Creating a revised edition of Caring for Australian Wildlife required an enthusiastic team effort – with everyone working together to make this book a wonderful resource for wildlife carers. Sharon is very grateful, as their dedication and contribution to this project has been unconditional.
Sharon White has been a wildlife carer for many years, eventually developing and delivering a short course ‘Caring for Wildlife’. The book Caring for Australian Wildlife was initially published by Australian Geographic in 1997, and later became the textbook for the course. The following year she was asked to develop an accredited course ‘CAW100 Caring for Australian Wildlife’, which she delivered to many organisations in Queensland.
Over the years Sharon has been asked if she would consider doing an update of the book. Eventually she approached Australian Geographic, who allowed her to self-publish a revised edition.
In her free time Sharon volunteers at the Hervey Bay Information Centre, and is actively involved in Land for Wildlife and the Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland, Fraser Coast. When she isn’t in the office, she can be found working on her wildlife friendly property – a safe haven for local fauna.
