About Us

Welcome to Wildlife Safety Solutions!

We are a training provider of wildlife awareness, snake awareness, snakebite first aid and snake handling courses for both the general public and corporate companies.  In addition to our training courses we also conduct wildlife risk assessments for businesses and private homes and offer a 24hr reptile rescue service in our home town. As a company, we strive to provide our clients with a quality service and to promote both conservation and safety through education and awareness.

Our training courses are presented by Tim Baynham, founder and owner of WSS. Tim has had a lifelong passion and fascination for wildlife and in particular snakes and other venomous creatures. This interest naturally progressed to a career in the wildlife industry. Tim has worked at various public reptile facilities and has maintained his own private collection of snakes for many years.  His knowledge and experience working with snakes and other wildlife culminated in a position in the Oil and Gas industry as a wildlife advisor, specializing in Wildlife Safety. Working under the umbrella of the Health and Safety department for many years, he conducted snake and wildlife awareness training for company employees and sub-contractors. He was also responsible for the capture and relocation of problem snakes and other wildlife from all company facilities.

Tim’s wildlife photography portfolio is displayed on the website and his inspiring wildlife and landscape images bear witness to his love of the wilderness and its inhabitants.
