Kristian and Kerrie Guppie are the owners of Kenya, a property located approximately 9km north-west of Taree. The property is a dedicated wildlife sanctuary and a residence. It is Kristian and Kerrie’s intent to continue to utilise the property for conservation purposes, primarily by protecting existing remnant bushland as a wildlife corridor.
Kenya covers approximately 8 hectares of remnant bushland, with two hectares used for a residence and garden. Vegetation consists mainly of dry sclerophyll forest, including a variety of eucalypts, acacias and grevilleas.
Wildlife species known to inhabit the area include eastern grey kangaroos (Macropus giganteus), grey headed flying foxes (Pteropus poliocephalus), and a wide variety of birds including laughing kookaburras (Dacelo novaeguineae), galahs (Eolophus roseicapilla) tawny frog mouths (Podargus strigoides), finches and parrots.
