Redland City Council is excited to welcome Stacey Thomson, better known as Ranger Stacey, to Council’s Environment and Education team this week.
Mayor Karen Williams said Ranger Stacey, former host of the long-running, nature-themed television show Totally Wild, which ended recently, would be based primarily at IndigiScapes at Capalaba.
“We are delighted that Ranger Stacey has brought her wealth of conservation knowledge and experience to our community,” she said.
“She has a passion for inspiring a love of nature and Australian wildlife, and we are thrilled to have her working as part of our Council team.”
Ranger Stacey said working on Redlands Coast for Council was the start of an exciting new chapter for her, championing conservation and inspiring a new generation to connect with nature.
“I’ve been coming to Redlands Coast for recreation since I was a little girl and was married at Cleveland’s Grand View Hotel,” she said.
“I love it here.
“Redlands Coast is a beautiful, diverse environment with so much to offer from the coastal zones and islands to the hinterland.
“This is a very green part of the world with lots of parklands and vast tracts of bushland still in place.
“When the television show ended, I wanted to do something I believed in and where I could lend my skills.
“This is a very exciting new start for me and I’m looking forward to spending more time on Redlands Coast and getting to know the community better.
“The people here really value where they live and I’m looking forward to playing an active part in helping to showcase the many natural wonders that are found here.”
