Can you help? Currumbin Wildlife Hospital calling on local surfers

Do you have an old wetsuit gathering dust in your garage or cupboard at home? Well, dust it off because it could be put to good use!

The Currumbin Wildlife Hospital is in desperate need of wetsuit material and their calling on local surfers for help.

The animal hospital explained in a post on social media overnight that they use the material for creating tiny anaesthetic facemasks for injured wildlife.


“We are seeking wetsuit material to use for our anaesthetic facemasks” the hospital wrote on Facebook.

“Conventional facemask covers do not fit our weird and wonderful wildlife who come in all shapes and sizes!”

The hospital said the thinner the material the better, but any shape/size can be donated for use.

If you would like to help out and donate a wetsuit to the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital, you can do so by dropping it off or sending it to 27 Millers Drive Currumbin 4223 QLD.
