Following decades of voluntary work in wildlife rehabilitation while working with cattle sheep and horses, Cheyne moved to full time wildlife work in the 90’s and  has been employed by the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital for the last 18 years as the Clinical Director. Over that time Cheyne has provided us vital insights into koala care and rehabilitation, both as a collaborator in koala care projects and, more recently, as a member of our advisory committee.
