Treating patients at our AZ Wildlife Hospital



The Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital helps treat and care for thousands of wildlife patients every year. Our motto is save one, save the species. This project will fund essential supplies, new equipment for the facility and the care of our precious wildlife patients so we can get them back out where they the wild. Visitors to the Sunshine Coast can come and see the amazing work we do and learn from Wildlife Warriors what they can do to help our native wildlife and the environment.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital is already overwhelmed with patients and getting busier every day. * Nearly 100 wildlife emergency calls are received every day * Up to 30 different species are admitted to the hospital every day * Currently over 60 koalas undergoing treatment * Approximately 70% of patients are victims of car accidents or domestic pet attacks Last year alone, the hospital treated over 7,500 wildlife patients making it the busiest facility of it's kind in Australia.

How will this project solve this problem?

All patients are treated on a no fee basis, with the Hospital's operating costs met by the charity's fundraising efforts and the support of a small number of sponsors. New equipment and a steady flow of supplies is essential in the provision of these services

Potential Long Term Impact

This will enable us to purchase vital supplies and equipment that will enable us to give the best possible veterinary care to the patients we treat. The ultimate goal for each of these patients is release back to the wild and this project will enable us do this.
