Qld wildlife given lifesaving chance RACQ
Only in operation a mere few weeks and the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital’s very first animal ambulance, donated by RACQ, has already rescued more than 1000 injured animals from around the Gold Coast area.
Currumbin Wildlife Hospital is one of the busiest wildlife hospitals in Australia, treating more than 8,000 native animals in the past year alone.
The two-year sponsorship with RACQ ensures sick and injured animals, often injured by motorists on the side of the road can be quickly rescued and safely transported to the wildlife hospital before being treated, rehabilitated, and released back in to the wild.
The first patient to ride in the animal ambulance was 'Wandering Kate' a wild koala whose love of wandering up and down major Gold Coast roads has led to a number of trips to the Wildlife Hospital.
