Day 1871

September 2013: Winding up with a light-hearted moment from sixteen months ago, albeit it on a solemn occasion – Dolly having a good chest scratch before a fallen gum tree.

Well, after six years and 1,871 unique posts, this will be the last post in the Kanga-a-Day series. It was originally set up following the Black Saturday Bushfires in February 2009 as a tribute to Stella and Alan Reid who lost everything in those bush fires, including many of the orphaned kangaroos they had raised. So it is fitting that it wind up with the 6th anniversary of that tragic event. Certainly it has continued a lot longer than expected and has had a loyal following of macropod fans for all that time.

The Kanga-a-Day website will remain online indefinitely as a photographic resource for [non-profit] use in support of kangaroo welfare, as an inspiration to macropod fans, and as a simple tribute to the kanga individuals whose images grace these pages. :-)

Thank you for your support and encouragement over the past six years. It’s been a humbling experience, and of course, a distinct pleasure!

    Thank you so much for all of your wonderful pictures. We have laughed with you, cried with you and adored seeing some of the new joeys emerging into your beautiful mob. I will miss your lovely photographs. Thanks for them all Brett. Cathy xx

    Dear Brett,
    It is with heavy heart that I read your post this morning, but not entirely unexpected.
    I cannot thank you enough for providing Kanga-a-Day unfailingly for the past 6 years. It has been an absolute joy and privilege to be a part of it.
    It would have to be the most comprehensive collection ever undertaken with exquisite photos and brilliant captions providing an insight into macropod life. Thank you for allowing us to continue to access the website into the future for our pleasure – we are incredibly lucky.
    Dolly seems to be coping without your daily presence, and I’m sure you’re relieved about that!
    I wish you all the very best in the future Brett. You are an incredibly special person – one of a kind in fact, and I hope that the future brings you much happiness.
    I don’t have to tell you that K-a-Day will be sorely missed …..
    It truly has been a magical journey, and will never,ever, be forgotten.
    Fondest wishes from Linda and the Sunshine Coast kangas xxx
