Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Open Day 2022 – A Huge Success!
More than 900 people attended this year’s Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Open day, held on Saturday the 23rd of July 2022.
It was a very special opportunity for members of the public to go behind the scenes and see the amazing vets, vet nurses and volunteers at work.
Staff performed real time procedures on Birds, Bats, Koalas and even Snakes, while visitors toured the facility. Visitors were also shown what animals eat during their stay and how the food, such as worms and crickets, are prepared.
Ticket holders were then able to explore the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, and meet with members of our community, such as Police Beat, QLD Surf Life Saving, Rotary Currumbin Coolangatta Tweed, Wildcare, Bats QLD and City of Gold Coast.
All proceeds from ticket sales will now go directly to Currumbin Wildlife Hospital, and help veterinary team treat, rehabilitate, and release sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife animals.
We were thrilled to welcome so many people through our hospital doors on Saturday. We are so grateful for the ongoing community support, which is vital for us to continue our life saving work.Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Senior Vet Dr Michael Pyne.
Currumbin Wildlife Hospital is one of the busiest wildlife hospitals in the world, admitting more than 14,000 patients last year alone, including almost 500 Koalas!
Currumbin Wildlife Hospital provides a free service to the community, and relies heavily on donations.
Thank you to everyone who attended or contributed to this year’s Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Open Day, we look forward to seeing you again next year!
