About Wildlife Xposure
WildlifeXposure specialises in delivering top quality mobile live and interactive native animal incursions, displays and presentations throughout Melbourne, Geelong and broader regional Victoria. We aim to promote conservation through education and inspire a greater understanding and appreciation of wildlife.
WildlifeXposure grew from a personal fascination and passion for wildlife and nature. For over 15 years, owner/operator Xavier Morello has been working with wildlife and eco-educating adults and children to increase awareness of the beauty and uniqueness of Australia’s native animals.
Xavier’s fascination and experience with animals has driven WildlifeXposure to become one of the most successful interactive educational wildlife incursion providers servicing Victoria.
“WildlifeXposure is more than just a mobile zoo, that brings animals direct to you. We are a family business that offers a boutique, immersive wildlife experience.
Every day we are invigorated by the joy we see, particularly in children, from their exposure to our animals and the learning they experience. We like to think that we are contributing, in a small way, to the development of the next generation of Australian zoologists and conservationists”.
“Living with and caring for our animals at our private 2 acre sanctuary on the Surf Coast Victoria, allows our wildlife family to live in and amongst a natural bush setting.”
Not only is this sanctuary home to WildlifeXposure’s animal ambassadors, the property is also a protected wildlife zone and haven for local wildlife. Regular visitors include wild wallabies, kangaroos, koalas, echidnas, possum’s, antechinuses, and other small mammals, along with frogs and reptiles. Up to 99 species of birds have been recorded at the WildlifeXposure headquarters! It is truly a unique little wildlife sanctuary.
“Setting up our family home and our little private native “open-range zoo” in this environment further aligns our family and business with our motivation to eco-educate the community whilst protecting and preserving wildlife in our little piece of wilderness.”
