A member of the Vertebrate Pest Management Association of Australia, previous vice president and an active committee member.


Steve Edwards grew up on a farm in the Wheat Belt and developed an affinity with the land continuing his ethos to the conservation industry where he developed an empathy for the plight of the native Australian animals like Quenda, Tammar Wallabies, Possums, Woylies and Bilbies to name a few.

Steve started his WildThings Animal Control Solutions based on the need for conservation of threatened wildlife. Along the way he has been inspired and created innovative techniques to overcome age old problems related to the Australian bush and natural species.Steve works right across Western Australia from the South West to the Pilbara.

In Australia, over the last 200 years the numbers of native Australian fauna species have been in decline. We have over 1500 animals listed as threatened with extinction. The introduction of animal species like foxes, cats and rabbits have played a critical part in these extinctions.

WildThings provide professional services for both fauna survey and monitoring programs including Vertebrate Pest Management. This includes both stand-alone services or a combined venture to provide effective wildlife conservation through the control and monitoring of feral species and the monitoring, management and protection of native wildlife and their habitats.
