Margaret Gough: Saving Our Wildlife

On January 8 The Big Fix visited renowned wildlife carer Margaret Gough at Mt Victoria in the Blue Mountains.

Margaret demonstrated what we can do to help provide the food and water they so desperately need … and clarified a few misunderstandings of what you can actually feed wildlife!
