It’s business as usual at the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital, with staff continuing to treat sick and injured wildlife from across the Gold Coast and Northern New South Wales.
Dr Michael Pyne told myGC the hospital is still providing the same service to the public.
“We are still admitting a lot of wildlife – very similar numbers to what we did this time last year,” he said. “We are averaging around 30 cases everyday.

“It’s really important we get the message out that we are still open.
“We don’t want sick and injured wildlife suffering out there – we want people to know they can safely bring those animals to us here at the hospital.”
Mr Pyne said the hospital had implemented some new safety measures, as well as a contactless drop off point for animals.
“We have split our team into two groups to minimise the risk should anyone get sick. And there are big changes at our drop off point at the front of the hospital, so there is no person to person contact.”
