About Chris Humfrey’s Wild Life  (from December Films)

Imagine if your home security was monitored by a howling pack of dingoes? Could you share the couch with a koala that has a thing for reality TV? And what about being woken up every morning by the lick of a Ringtail Possum sitting comfortably on your face.

Welcome to Chris Humfrey’s world. He’s a zoologist, passionate about wildlife, who lives with his wife Nicole and their young family on a sprawling private zoo in country Victoria. With more than 2000 amazing creatures in their care – including their daughters Taasha (4 yrs) and Charlie-Ashe (6 yrs) – Chris and Nicole share their property with an enthusiastic crew of Gen Y zookeepers. Every waking minute is consumed by animal and human dramas and dilemmas of one kind or another.

The Humfreys run a thriving business that brings thousands of school kids and people from all over Victoria into direct contact with wild animals. They have an incredible collection of birds, reptiles, venomous snakes, insects, marine life, marsupials and more. Chris has dedicated his life to preserving Australian wildlife and providing an opportunity for the public to be part of nature and experience it first hand. But family life, work life and wildlife don’t always fit neatly together.

New sagas unfold every day at the zoo. In between training staff and taking calls, Chris figures out what to do with a giant python with a back problem or cares for baby owl masked chicks. He struggles to breed new animals and always delights in seeing new life – even if it means bottle-feeding baby wallabies in the middle of the night. Just when Chris and Nicole think that things are running smoothly, something wildly unpredictable always surprises them: one of his presenters loses a large snake in an inner city residential area; a door carelessly left open results in the office being over run by thousands of stick insects; tragedy strikes when feral foxes attack in the middle of the night.

Even running his own private zoo doesn’t fully satisfy Chris’ appetite for wildlife; any chance he gets, Chris escapes in search of more adventure. He travels off-road to explore the ranges, rivers and deserts of Australia in the hope of tracking down animals and learning more about them. His relentless impulse to drop everything and ‘go-bush’ often exasperates his wife Nicole who is trying to keep their family and business together. For now, the Humfrey home is the business office for the zookeepers and the incubator hub where baby animals are reared. One day they’ll have a home of their own.

Follow Chris in this chaotic, animal-crazy series that captures the drama, the danger, the animal antics and the sheer exhilaration of Chris Humfrey’s Wild Life.
