Everyone can see the brilliant work the vets, nurses, caretakers and volunteers do when visiting Australia Zoo. A behind the scenes Sneak Peek is available for a small donation, where you are privy to the hospital theatre and triage check up areas. Delve even further into the workings of the hospital with a guided tour where you’ll be allowed behind the ‘staff only’ doors.
You might see gorgeous little animals with tiny casts for broken limbs, babies in humidicribs and recovering natives in makeshift eucalyptus trees – it will leave these vulnerable parts of our environment and the work the hospital team does in your heart forever.
There are many reasons our native wildlife can end up in Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital and there are plenty of ways we can help reduce the numbers. Whether it be a young orphan, car strike, pet attack, fishing tackle or they’re simply in a strange area, our vets won’t turn away any native in need.
