We are your Wildlife Hospital!

It is up to our incredible community to shape Currumbin Wildlife Hospital into the place you want it to be.

This month, we are reflecting on the impact every person reading this Wildlife Times has had on this Hospital.

From creating awareness to donating urgent equipment from our Wishlist, it all supports our mission to treat, rehabilitate and release wildlife.

Find out about some of the genius ways people support our wildlife!

The greatest part about our Currumbin Wildlife Hospital community is that people visit from far and wide to support us.

The Townsville Chiefs, a Masters Rugby League Club, are the latest group to kindly surprise our vet team with urgent equipment.

Over $1000 was donated from weekly raffles to buy a new camera for our Research Supervisor Lewis and the team to use out in the field.

The last camera used in the Koala Chlamydia Vaccine Research Program was damaged in a storm, so this donation was extremely important.

Two hanging scales were also donated which assist in recording the weight of Koala patients. The Chiefs visited Currumbin Wildlife Hospital while on tour and were impressed by the team of volunteers keeping our mission alive.

There are currently 182 volunteers working to support the vet team at Currumbin Wildlife Hospital.

There have been more than 200, 000 admissions at Currumbin Wildlife Hospital since it opened in 1989 so we need all the help we can get.

It takes our global community to keep this mission to treat, rehabilitate and release wildlife alive!
