Meet the Team






Dave Irwin is owner/manager of Raptor Domain and has had many years experience hand-raising, rehabilitating and displaying many species of wildlife. Here at Raptor Domain he now specialises in Birds of prey, which has been his passion since 1970. Dave first became interested when he had the opportunity to assist with a research programs put in place by Gerry Olsen. Raptor Domain is a life time dream which is now a reality here on Kangaroo Island. Dave normally presents on weekends.






Nina is a wonderful addition to our team and has a smile that can light up a room. As you can see Nina has a passion for reptiles, so besides presenting at our birds of prey and Venom Pit displays she oversees our popular attraction ” Fang-Tastic”, which offers an amazing experience with the reptiles, where she and other staff members deliver wonderful, educational, interactive and fun presentations. Nina is your typical country girl that love’s nothing more than to curl up with an awesome reptile.

I have delivered many wildlife presentations over the years but now I spend my time running our business and being the receptionist that meets and greets all our wonderful guests. I look forward to meeting you here at Raptor Domain.
