You are invited to a Nearly a Vet Convention at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary!

What is a Nearly a Vet Convention?

Bring a stuffed animal and come and join Rebecca Johnson, author of the bestselling Juliet, Nearly a Vet series and the winner of the 2015 Prime Ministers Prize for teaching Primary School Science.

Join other ‘Nearly Vets’ as we practise our vetting skills and learn about the things real vets do, with some extra special guests!

PLUS! Visit the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital and get a behind the scenes look at any potential operations and care that the wildlife are receiving.

You’ll also get some tips on great story writing and character development.
