Thanks for a great question Katie from WA.
The Wildlife Hospital at the Animal Care Campus, Wacol admitted 18,413 sick, injured and orphaned wildlife animals in 2014/2015 – you’re right, that is a lot.
We have dedicated wards within the hospital to house mammals, birds and reptiles during their critical care period. Luckily, this is usually only a few days.
We work closely with many wildlife rehabilitation organisations and invidual wildlife carers who dedicate their own time and money to help with long term care if required. By working together we are able to offer care to all animals that need our help.
