The Secret lives of Ben Ricketts


Visit Ben Ricketts Environmental Preserve on any day and you'll see and hear an explosion of life. Our ever-changing rainforest teems with trees and vines and the song of dozens of birds.


But even seasoned friends of Ben Ricketts may not realise that there is another world here after dark. You might have glimpsed a wombat or seen the roos on Misty Lane, but have you met our possums, antechinus, echidnas, bats, bandicoots, wallabies and quolls?


Armed with a remote infrared camera, Nancy Pallin has captured many of these local residents on video! After years on the mountain, Nancy has developed a good sense of where you are most likely to see a variety of wildlife. These videos are from just one of these locations.
