Apologies for the lack of entries in recent times. It's been a busy time for all of us recently.
Wayne, our Head Vet, is over in China at the moment with Senior Panda Keeper, Simone, and Assistant Curator, Jason, to become better acquainted with Wang Wang and Funi. They will all fly back together at the end of November. See Simone's Panda Blog for more details of their trip to China.
Meanwhile, our head vet nurse Dianne is busy ensuring everything is organised for their post-arrival quarantine, which will be overseen by AQIS.
Other things going on for the health centre recently include Ian accompanying a giraffe to Australia Zoo, health checking bettongs on the Eyre Peninsula, Lynley taking some time off to work on her Masters in Conservation Medicine, and disease investigation in bentwing bats at Naracoorte Caves.
Will give a bit more information on some of these in subsequent posts.
