We follow Alex on her journey through animal photography to an ambassador for the WA Wild Life Inc, Carers Association; Alex describes how she came to photograph and captures the beauty in these animals. Through her photography she raises awareness to the bravery of the wonderful qualified Joey rescuers and carers, people who work tirelessly rescuing baby Joey’s, Joey’s that have survived a bush fire or being hit by a vehicle whilst in their mothers pouch, they now need to be raised! Raising Joey follows the rescuers as they go caringly about their work at the feeding stations at Two Rocks National Park Perth WA.
