I attended a workshop with WildTalk [Frances] last weekend sponsored by Wildcare Queanbeyan. What a fantastic presenter! It was attended by wildlife carers who have a very busy and stressful time caring for native animals 24 hours a day. The emphasis was on self-care, something wildlife carers are particularly poor at doing. Plenty of important topics were addressed – grief and loss, disenfranchised loss, communication with members of the public and within your group, mentoring and compassion fatigue. Thanks Frances, much food for thought and self-reflection.
