Dear Supporters

Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors are saying a massive THANK YOU to everyone who supported our project in 2011! Keeping the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital running with the latest equipment and the best veterinary care is no small task. Thanks to your generous donations and support, we were able to treat the 7,500+ animals that came through our doors.

All the equipment on our wishlist is used in the care and rehabilitation of our precious wildlife. Since the Wildlife Hospital opened in 2004, we have treated over 30,000 sick, injured and orphaned patients. Without your support, we wouldn't have been able to get these animals back to the wild where they belong.

2011 was a very busy year. We had over 7,500 animals brought through the hospital. That's more than 140 animals on average a week!

Check out how many patients were admitted each month -

January - 917

February - 567

March - 546

April - 530

May - 400

June - 329

July - 345

August - 603

September - 648

October - 937

November - 754

December - 723

Interesting fact: Out of all these animals, 833 were koalas!

It was the dream of Lyn Irwin (Steve's mum) to have a hospital that offered a free service to anyone who found injured wildlife, or was a registered carer. This dream is now a reality and could not happen without the help of people just like you.

Our staff are here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year to ensure our wildlife get the treatment they deserve. With your support Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors can give these innocent victims the best possible chance at life.

Yours in conservation
