A group of nurses in Brisbane have started an Instagram account posting photos of a toy poo in iconic places around the world.
Ward 6E colorectal clinical nurses from the Wesley Hospital started the account earlier this year to raise awareness about bowel cancer.
Named Bristol, after the international stool scale, the emoji poo toy has been photographed in Brazil, Mexico, Bail and Scotland and on numerous beaches around Australia.
“He’s a very well-travelled poo, he gets around,” nurse and creator Steph Young said.
“Our manager came up with the idea and encouraged us to take the poo away because as nurses we travel a lot.
“So we take him with us and take photos of him travelling.
“It can be interesting holding a toy poo through Customs.”
The team chose Instagram as a platform to spread the message not only nationally, but internationally.
“We’re getting messages and likes from people all over the world,” Ms Young said.
