Donna Treby

After  school, Donna started work as a veterinarian nurse and eventually started working  at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary as a zookeeper and vet nurse.

While  working she enrolled in a course on Captive Vertebrate Management and during this  time she volunteered to assist with some research that was being done with the  Northern Hairy-nosed Wombats.

This  convinced her that she wanted to help critically endangered wildlife and her research  specialises on the Northern Hairy-nosed Wombats.

In  the field she is up early, around 5.30 am and tries to get as much work done before  it gets too hot. The middle of the day is spent sorting through data and preparing  to go back out to work at about 3 pm, and work through until dark.
