To all of our Wildlife Warriors

Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors want to thank you for your support so far and into 2012. It's still go go go at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital and we are gearing up for another busy trauma season for our koala patients.

Many of our patients require complex intensive care, hands-on rehabilitation and many months of specialised treatment to make a full recovery.  Just like humans, their treatments are costly, and without the generosity of caring individuals like you, many of our animals would suffer with the lack of adequate treatment provided by the vets, nurses, carers and volunteers.  Because of you, we are able to provide a level of care that ensures we reach our goal – to release our patients back into the wild, so they can live out their life as nature intended.

In 2011 there were over 7,500 animals admitted to the Wildlife Hospital with 833 of those being koalas!

The koala breeding season is from around June to December and in this time, they start to cover a lot more ground. As they start to look for mates, they move between territories. This, as well as spreading the gene pool around, means they end up crossing a lot more roads and back yards in search of the perfect partner. Unfortunately, this means there are more chances they can be hit by a car or attacked by a dog.

Last year we had 207 koala patients brought through the doors with injuries sustained from being hit by a car. 75% of these koalas were admitted during the breeding season!

Our vets and nurses here at the hospital are ready to go, 24hrs a day, 7 days a week, for any patient that comes through our doors. It's with your support that we can continue our work in the conservation and rehabilitation of our wildlife, and without your generosity, it would make our mammoth task even more daunting.

Thank you from the hearts of our wildlife

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.

One of our recent success stories was Frodo the koala who made world headlines. Here is her story:

It has been over six months since little Frodo the female koala joey came into care at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital after a member of the public near Kenilworth contacted the Australia Zoo Rescue Unit reporting an injured koala joey on Friday 5 November, 2010.  The koala joey was transported by the Australia Zoo Rescue Unit to the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital where wildlife veterinarian Dr Amber Gillett’s assessment revealed the joey had sustained a fractured skull and significant damage to the stomach and intestines as result of being shot with what appeared to be the spray of a shot gun. X-rays revealed approximately 15 pellets scattered throughout her body.

Six months later and staff at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital are amazed at how far Frodo has come.  Weighing a tiny 1.9kg upon admission, little Frodo has overcome horrific injuries and health challenges and is almost ready to return to the wild.

Thank you again for your your support from ours and the hearts of our wildlife.
