Wild Actions Chris Humfrey

Chris Humfrey is a forty old Zoologist who has always had a ‘burning’ passion for all things WILD! Born in the outskirts of Melbourne, he grew up with a childhood of chasing lizards, catching tadpoles and bird watching. In fact he never ventured inside the family house, Humfrey was always outside ‘over the fence’ searching for wildlife!

Amazingly, Chris still has many of his animal friends from childhood. ‘Freddo’ the frog, the enormous fat green tree frog was collected when he was three in the public toilets of Coffs Harbour sticking to the urinal, and ‘Hector’ the blotched blue-tongued lizard, which wandered into the family back-yard when he was eight years.

His thirst for knowledge and keenness to observe wild creatures has led him to travel the world over….spotting Leopards in Sri Lanka, Rhino’s in Nepal, Pumas in Belize, and death adders in the outback of Australia.

Chris now owns and operates his own private zoo, nestled in the Macedon Ranges. His collection consists of over 2000 + native Australian animals including Little Penguin, Koalas, Quolls, Snakes, Wedge-Tailed Eagles, Cassowaries, and even Blue-Ringed Octopus.

Wild Action Zoo proudly breeds many rare and endangered species. Every year Chris and the Wild Action Team successfully contribute valuable livestock to other Australian Zoo’s by breeding the critically endangered Tiger Quoll (a close relative to the Tasmanian Devil).

Winner of the 2008 Telstra Business of the Year award, Humfrey’s Company Wild Action ‘The Zoo Comes To You!’ is a multi-award winning mobile education Company.  Wild Action teaches well over 250,000 school children a year about Australia’s amazing biodiversity. Chris’ quirky 3D ‘hands-on’ educational format has proved very successful, and for the past 21 years has been the leading incursion supplier of Environmental Education lessons in Victoria. Chris’ environmental ethos simply is, “How can we save something if we don’t know anything about it? Creating empathy and awareness is the key to conservation”.

Chris’ passion for kids and environmental education has led him to open up his own private zoo for ‘hands-on’ zoo-keeper training days for kids. Nestled in the foothills of the Macedon Ranges, his workshops run everyday of the Victorian school holidays. Chris and his dedicated Team of Tertiary trained Zoologists and Teachers ensure that kids of all ages have a fun, educational and of course an unbeatable interactive wildlife experience.

Chris co-produced his own 13 part TV show for ABC television called, ‘Chris Humfrey’s Wild Life!’ The show has been successfully sold to Animal Planet/Discovery Channel world-wide.

Chris appears regularly in the Herald Sun and on Melbourne radio, ABC’s Studio Three and Channels Nine’s Kids WB.

Chris is a keen adventurer and athlete. He has represented Australia in numerous World Championships in extreme wild water kayaking throughout the world. 

Chris loves travelling to wild and remote places, because that’s where the animals are!
