As an independent not-for-profit organisation, we need your support to continue to provide the best service and protect the future of our wildlife.

Part of our 2021 tax appeal campaign, we ask that you consider donating before June 30 so we can keep our mission alive. All donations over $2 are tax-deductible.

The koala population in South East Queensland and Northern NSW is on a steady decline due to chlamydia, one of the biggest threats posed to the species' future, which costs Currumbin Wildlife Hospital approximately $7000 to treat each koala. More than half of the koala admissions are due to koala chlamydia.

  • 2020 was the busiest year on record at Currumbin Wildlife Hospital, and our total admissions were 13,794 compared to 12,198 the previous year
  • Currumbin Wildlife Hospital is the busiest dedicated wildlife facility in Australia
  • There have been more than 140,000+ admissions in the hospital over the last 20 years
  • More than 500 of our 2020 admissions resulted from severe bushfires and drought that ravaged parts of Queensland and Northern NSW
  • Koala admissions have increased drastically from 27 in 2008
  • In 2021 Currumbin Wildlife Hospital has started vaccinating all koalas against koala chlamydia
  • We have three Wildlife Ambulances that assist in rescuing and releasing those sick and injured animals serving a local catchment of 2 plus hour radius working within both states QLD and NSW


Thank you very much for your continued support. Every dollar makes a real difference and will save lives.



The Currumbin Wildlife Hospital has grown to be one of the busiest wildlife hospitals in the world, admitting almost 14,000 animals a year - a service that is provided free of charge to the community. It is imperative that we can continue to treat, rehabilitate, and release sick and injured wildlife during these testing times. Koala admissions have increased to over 600 in 2020, and each koala costs approximately $7000 to treat.
