As part of our commitment to support our community, Healthspace made a generous donation to support the veterinary department at Melbourne Zoo.
As Healthspace is no longer importing radiation protection, the team agreed that donating the excess stock items would be the best gift to the community. All the staff here at Healthspace are animal lovers, so the zoo was an obvious choice.
The donation included over 40 radiation gowns, protective eyewear , thyroid collars and equipment to maintain items.
The gift was received on behalf of the Melbourne Zoo by the head of Veterinary Services, Dr Michael Lynch. They were overwhelmed to receive the items which will be used at multiple sites managed by Melbourne Zoo and some will be given to their research partners in overseas departments.
