Rusty helps out tur­tles

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - NEWS -

SICK and in­jured sea tur­tles at Aus­tralia Zoo have found a saviour in ac­tor Rus­sell Crowe, who has shelled out for a vi­tal piece of med­i­cal equip­ment.

Crowe re­cently do­nated a new en­do­scope es­ti­mated to cost $50,000 to the zoo’s Wildlife Hos­pi­tal.

The en­do­scope will al­low vets to con­duct oth­er­wise in­va­sive sur­gi­cal pro­ce­dures with min­i­mal im­pact on the pa­tient, by avoid­ing large in­ci­sions to per­form surg­eries such as re­mov­ing fish hooks from the gul­let and up­per gas­troin­testi­nal tract.
