Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

WHILE the Perth Zoo an­i­mals at­tract guests from far and wide, one young vis­i­tor flew all the way from the east­ern states to see his favourite nurse.

Perth Zoo fans Malakai Bren­nan (4) and his mother Re­bekah Lorimer re­cently moved to the east coast, but they re­mained heav­ily in­vested in the zoo.

Af­ter spot­ting a bi­og­ra­phy on vet­eri­nary nurse Kate Si­mon-Me­nasse in the zoo’s mag­a­zine, Malakai fell in love.

De­spite now liv­ing on the other side of the coun­try, Bek and Malakai flew to WA and vis­ited Ms Si­mon-Me­nasse ear­lier this month for a spe­cial be­hind the scenes visit.

Af­ter a star-struck en­counter with his idol, Malakai said he wanted to be a vet­eri­nar­ian nurse at Perth Zoo when he grows up.
