Jacqueline Crookston - Generous Bequestor

A bequest, left by the late Jacqueline Crookston, enabled the Taronga Wildlife Hospital to purchase a much needed digital x-ray machine. The new equipment now makes it possible to radiograph any creature from the world's smallest gliding mammal to the large and rather muscular Red Kangaroos. Providing amazing detail and flexibility, the new system makes veterinary diagnosis easier and speedier, limiting the amount of time animals need to be under anaesthetic.

I have loved animals all my life and it gives me great pleasure to help them receive the best husbandry and veterinary care possible.
