Summary "From the time he was old enough to focus on an object, Tim Faulkner has had his eyes glued on things that slither, climb, claw, shake, hope and burrow. Over the past 20 years, Tim's wild life has included being chased up a gum tree by a feisty 70 kilo cassowary; extracting venom from some of the world's most deadly snakes and spiders; starring in TV documentaries with an international following co-owning the Australian Reptile Park; building conservation organisations, such as Aussie Ark, from scratch; establishing and rewilding a breeding population of Tasmanian devils on the Australian mainland (for the first time in 3000 years); and rescuing rare turtles and other wildlife after the 2019-2020 Black Summer bushfires. There is a powerful motivation behind Tim's decision to share stories and lessons from his remarkable life in animal conservation. Australia has the worst animal and plant extinction rate on Earth, with one in three of our native mammals at imminent risk of disappearing forever - and Tim is passionately committed to raising our awareness of this catastrophic situation facing this country's unique ecology. Tim Faulkner is on a mission to save Australia's threatened wildlife and restore its unique biodiversity. And he want all his fellow Aussies to join him in the fight." --Back cover
