Wildlife Wednesday: Follow-up with Zammit the koala

Currumbin Wildlife Hospital staff are thrilled with the progress Zammit the koala has made after having a bone tumor removed from his collarbone.

Just over a month ago, the wild male koala was brought in to the hospital suffering with a chlamydia infection in his eyes, but a thorough check-up soon uncovered that he also had a tumour. Click here to read the full story.

Dr Michael Pyne told myGC Zammit’s doing very well post surgery. “He has made a good recovery so now it is just about getting him strong enough to be released,” he said. “This is a really happy story, but it could have ended sadly if we didn’t get the chance to catch the cancer early.”
