Introducing Vet Nurse Stephanie Pilgrim
How long have you been at Currumbin Wildlife Hospital?
Vet Nurse at Currumbin Wildlife Hospital since 2016 but volunteered at the hospital prior to that.
What is your motivation to save wildlife?
90% of the animals that are admitted to the hospital come in because of human activity, so we have a responsibility to help them.
