Tough Time for Koalas!

Spring is the busiest time of year at Currumbin Wildlife Hospital, with Australian wildlife on the move looking for breeding partners.

This time of year is known as ‘Koala Trauma Season’, with more Koalas attempting to cross local roads during these warmer months.

Renshaw the Koala, featured here with Vet Nurse Kate, is an example of how tough it is for our Koalas in the wild.

Renshaw was hit by a car and suffered fractured ribs, lacerations and then also tested positive for chlamydia.

Each Koala is precious and complicated to treat, so we need your help to save patients like Renshaw.

While it’s a challenging time of year for Currumbin Wildlife Hospital, we’d love to update you on some incredible ‘wins’ our vet team have had lately.

We’re pleased to report that over 300 Koalas have now been vaccinated against chlamydia.

Our Koala Chlamydia Vaccine Research Program now includes 45 Koalas including 21 Koala joeys that have been born into the program.

Koalas became endangered last year so there has never been a more important time to save our national icon.
