For most of her life Betty Spilsted has been loving, rescuing, caring for and releasing seabirds and other wildlife for Seabird Rescue and Wildlife Rescue South Coast. She's spent her life breaking the mould of what is expected of someone born into the 1940's and at 74 she's decided to stick with the animals.
In this episode we talk about Betty's passion for wildlife, some of her favourite species, encounters with them and her perspectives on the modern world and current comings and goings.
