Wildlife Wednesday: Jersey the Sugar Glider

A sugar glider who has had a nasty run-in with a barbed wire fence is recovering in the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital.

Vet Camille told myGC Jersey sustained damage to his gliding membrane.

“Jersey will remain under treatment here for a week or two, depending on how well that membrane damage comes back together.”


Camille told myGC barbed wire fences are a huge danger to wildlife.

“Fencing materials are really important in the conservation of wildlife. There are alternative wildlife-friendly fencing that can be used to avoid this sort of injury.”
