About the Project

The Wildlife Research & Education Campus would enable the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital to continue and expand its current research and training programs to not only save many native wildlife species from extinction but also generate a unique Queensland experience for visitors.

The research and training conducted at the Campus will undoubtedly have a profound impact on the preservation of native wildlife species, including the critically endangered koala.

The proposed project is poised to be a significant asset for Australia, in the realm of conservation. Watch our video to find out more.
