Alex Mockridge

Pet Care Consultant

Alex’s journey started with a pigeon named Henry who she rescued after he was unfortunately hit by a car. After she released Henry back out into the world, she felt herself longing for the company of a bird again. And that is how she ended up with a whole flock. Well, you can’t just have one can you? At different times Alex has owned no fewer than 11 parrots, but even that wasn’t enough. She started volunteering for a zoo that specialised in birds and took care of hundreds of parrots of many species. After a significant period of voluntary work, she was offered a paid position and gained invaluable experience of parrot husbandry. Alex have since broadened my pet knowledge beyond the avian, having worked in a pet shop and expanded her own family to include multiple small animals, too. 

Makenzie Ferrier

Conservationist

Makenzie’s passion for this dream started with a gorgeous chinchilla called Oatmeal who stole the hearts of everyone who visited his student house. Oatmeal took a man with an adoration for animals and channeled that energy into a passion for pet welfare. With a degree in conservation Makenzie’s experience does not start or end with his wealth of knowledge on animal husbandry, but spreads also to plants. His green thumb filled our house with gorgeous pot plants, but he quickly developed a love for the duel purpose of our plants and gardens to not only brighten our lives but provide a vital green refuge for critters of all sizes in our urban jungles.

Jason Woodcock

Naturalist

From a young age Jason was, as described by his parents, precocious. Family stories often tell of a five year old jason grabbing his mother’s hand and running her to the most obscure small animal any zoo  could offer (and there were many, many zoo visits upon his demand) He would then spew forth a slew of facts and nich information said animal. No one was surprised, therefore, when he graduated with an honours degree in animal behaviour. Complete with animal tracking and conservation experience in Africa, zoo work experience, a job with the RSPCA, a zookeeping qualification and an animal husbandry apprenticeship, Jason is beyond qualified for his real passion – writing. Sharing his love for animals and all things nature is really what Jason does best.
