The Peace Run team are off for a real experience with owner Perry Reid. Wildlife is living in natural environments the way nature intended it to be. The team at Natures Wonders do not build hutches or shelters, they don't feed the wildlife, and the wildlife is not subjected to tagging, handling or any form of testing.

On tour with Perry.

Perry Reid talking to the Peace Run team. Perry has a dream to protect this special land, the penguins and seals as well as replanting the native forest of the area to provide a sanctuary for our native birds. He wants to make a place for the whole world and future generations to see. His passion extends throughout the family and his wife Tracey is right there at his side.
