Kangaroo Rescue & Rehab Sweden

Since May 2021, we're fostering an orphaned Red-Necked Wallaby joey. Thanks to the generous help of Australian and German kangaroo experts, the joey thrived, and we learned a lot about the very special around-the-clock care young macropods (kangaroos & relatives) need.

With our professional background as a biologist and a biogeochemist, and as volunteer wildlife rescuers and rehabbers, we're now setting up Sweden's first Macropod Rescue & Rehab facility to help zoos and other macropod keepers to save the lives of their sick and orphaned joeys.

WHAT THE FUNDS WILL BE USED FOR:
  • To cover costs for kangaroo milk replacer (150 to 200SEK per litre), artificial kangaroo teats (10 to 20SEK per week per joey), an incubator with humidity control and heart-sound simulator for very young joeys (8.000 to 15.000SEK), material for artificial pouches, etc.. 
  • To cover veterinary costs.
  • To build an enclosure that allows older joeys to safely roam our orchard and forest, so they can express and learn natural behaviours (20.000SEK).
  • To write a free, downloadable guide on essentials of first aid, physical examination, feeding, etc., and of course our contact details if anyone has questions or needs help.

Our rescue animals are not on public display.
