The RACQ will today hand over the keys of an ‘Animal Ambulance’ to Currumbin Wildlife Hospital to assist with transporting injured patients for treatment.
The hospital is one of the busiest wildlife hospitals in Australia, treating over 8000 native animals in the last year alone. But, as with many charities, they rely on donations and sponsorships to continue the work of saving Australia’s native wildlife.
RACQ has generously loaned Currumbin Wildlife Hospital the Animal Ambulance to make sure each animal receives the highest level of veterinary care – helping the wildlife organisation to transport the animals to and from the wild.

The first animal to ride in the ambulance will be “Wandering Kate” – a wild, hospitalised koala who likes to wander, and has travelled up and down the Gold Coast and crossed a number of major roads on her travels.
