Dreamworld wildlife education officer Tom Patterson has to do something pretty strange to keep his feathered friends tamed.
In his job as a keeper at the Dreamworld Sanctuary, Tom is forced to wear a blonde wig to keep Poya, an 11-year-old Cockatoo tamed.

Poya was raised by blonde female keepers, so when Tom joined the team he realised if he couldn’t beat ’em, he should join ’em!
Tom has been donning his blonde wig everyday since his arrival late last year – and the cockatoo is certainly happy!
