Meredith Stanton, Clouds Creek

‘It just felt like a miracle.’

Meredith lives at Clouds Creek near Nymboida in an old local schoolhouse she had moved to her seventeen hectare property. She is surrounded by State Forest and National Parks and deeply loves and cares for this biodiverse wilderness. As the fire approached the forest around her property, she got word from a neighbour that a back-burn along her road was being planned. She was aghast, concerned about all the threatened species that call it home, and did what she could to get her concerns heard.
