Vet Profile

Fumie Tokonami

Title: Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Veterinarian

Qualifications: BVSc, MVSc

Time at CWH: 10 years, plus 1 year of volunteering before employed.

Motivation to save wildlife: I used to think I am doing this for the love of animals and to take responsibility as a human since most of our  wildlife patients are injured or become sick because of what humans do, directly (eg. Vehicle hit, dog attack) or indirectly (eg. Habitat loss). But really, I do what I do for the people who care about wildlife and the potential impact and educational opportunity that one animal can have on the persons involved so that there will be more interests in and better understandings of wildlife and their habitat in our communities.
