Malakai renews love with zoo’s vet nurse
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.
