Morne Matthysen has always been an animal lover. Upon moving to Australia 5 years ago Morne knew he wanted to get involved in getting to know and protecting the unique animals here, although admittedly bats were not specifically front and centre in this. Through Wildcare he was introduced to Bats QLD and once attending the orphaned bat care workshop, he knew that this was where he wanted to focus his attention. Since getting to know Flying Foxes and after rehabilitating and releasing orphaned babies for the first time, the experience has changed his life. Morne is completely in love with this wonderful animal and devoted to protecting the species and also in making a contribution to this fantastic organisation in any way he can.
