Introducing Vet Nurse Bronte Potts
How long have you been at Currumbin Wildlife Hospital?
Almost 3 years but have been a vet nurse for almost 10 years. Started working with animals when I was 15, so have been in the industry for close to 15 years.
What is your motivation to save wildlife?
Environmental biodiversity and conservation.
Qualifications: Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing
What is your favourite wildlife species?
I find them all fascinating but have a real soft spot for yellow-tailed black cockatoos.
Who has been your most memorable patient?
Mac Freeman. A female koala who was sadly hit by a car and spent 2 months in the hospital. Mac suffered severe fractures, lacerations and lost her left eye. Unfortunately, Mac didn't survive so I made a pair of Mac Freeman earrings for myself in her memory.
