The time to act is NOW

Currumbin Wildlife Hospital is one of the busiest wildlife hospitals in the world. Its mission is to treat, rehabilitate and release Australian wildlife.

In the last 20 years, over 140,000 wildlife patients would have struggled to survive without the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital and its incredible network of wildlife carers.

To help save our precious wildlife and restore our environment, it is a service offered free to the community, but we cannot do it alone.

Tree to Me

Sick and injured koalas recovering in hospital can be very fussy eaters. Each Koala has their preferred gum species.

The gum cutters and veterinary nurses need to select several types of gum every day to keep the hospital patients happy. The Wildlife Hospital now treats over 600 wild Koalas every year, so that means we need to ensure the varied gum species for our Koalas are readily available.

The Tree to Me Program allows us to continue to plant eucalypt trees in our Plantations. For as little as $10, you can help.

Leave a charitable bequest in your will and help save Australia’s native wildlife.

The thousands of wildlife animals that come through Currumbin Wildlife Hospital each year are released back into the wild to breed and produce future generations.

A gift in your will help us continue to provide treatment to the wildlife animals. It will also go to research in helping find cures to diseases affecting these animals and provide education so you can trust our local wildlife will be left safe hands.

Together, we are making a real and tangible difference for wildlife and restoring wild places.

Corporate Partners

Currumbin Wildlife Hospital aims to raise $1.8 million annually to continue the fight to save Australia's wildlife and find cures for devastating diseases such as koala chlamydia.

Whilst the Queensland State Government and the Gold Coast City Council provide some grant money each year we are largely self-funded for the treatment of the ever-growing number of wildlife cases.

By becoming a corporate partner you will be helping to save countless lives and your generosity will help us to ensure future generations have the opportunity to see our precious wildlife in the wild.
