A DAY IN THE LIFE OF WAYNE AND JENNI FOX
“WE START our day at 6am when we have to take our first of three daily weather reports for the weather bureau, the next is at 9am and the final one for the day is at 3pm.
“Then we get on and check out the islands infrastructure to see if anything needs repairing as well as any routine maintenance that needs doing.
“Then there are meetings with tourism operators and all other stakeholders that use the island and at the same time ensuring the island is being used as it should be without any damage being caused from its many visitors.
“The island also has its own power and sewage plant and these are monitored daily, and being a green zone we also continually check that no ’bad vegetation’ is creeping on to the island which we have to immediately remove.
“We also have a museum which we have ensure is open each day.
“There are three houses on the island which also need to be maintained.
“One house is the caretakers’ residence, the second house is used by researchers from the University of Queensland and the third house is used by the Low Isles Preservation Society volunteers.”
