Michael Willis, founder of Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, and longtime friend of Staglands, has just published his latest book.
'Rescue' tells remarkable stories of animal rescue and conservation and promises to make you laugh, gasp and think.
Michael Willis was ten years old, already keeping rabbits, guinea pigs, frogs possums and birds in his parents' garden and dreaming of running a zoo of his own. Then came a life-changing present, a copy of naturalist Gerald Durrell's The Bafut Beagles. Suddenly the idea of working with animals became more than just a fantasy. A lot of hard work and ingenuity later, the dream came true in 1974 when Michael opened Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, on the outskirts of Christchurch.
