“These western grey kangaroo (Macropus fuliginosus) joeys were orphaned when their mothers were hit by cars. I helped care for them until they were old enough to be released back into the wild. Anxious, scared and vulnerable, they never let me out of their sight.” ‘Orphans’ is the winner of the People’s Choice award as voted by visitors to the @ausgeo Nature Photographer of the Year 2016 exhibition.
Thank you to everyone who came along and voted! See you next year.
