Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your support in helping us to raise enough funds for some essential equipment for the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital.

All the equipment on our wishlist is used in the veterinary care and rehabilitation of our precious wildlife patients. Last year we had over 8,500 injured and orphaned patients that needed our care and attention with the ultimate goal of getting them back to the wild where they belong.

Since our project was posted we have had the following admissions:

March 2011 - 546

April 2011 - 530

May 2011 - 400

June 2011 - 329

July 2011 - 345

That's over 2,000 animals!

It was Lyn Irwin's (Steve's mum) dream 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 support of people just like you.

The hospital is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days of the year meaning that there is always a place to take these innocent victims for the best possible chance at life.

We now need your help more than ever. Global Giving and Animal Planet have given us the opportunity to raise even more funds for this vital equipment. Please visit and help us reach our goals. Please pass this on to all your friends and family.

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