THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW!
Currumbin Wildlife Hospital is now one of the busiest wildlife hospitals in the world, admitting more than 12,000 animals each year - a service that is provided free of charge to the community.
The recent devastating and debilitating bushfires in Australia have decimated our wildlife. In particular, the impact on Koalas has been significant.
One of the bushfire survivors, Ember, was rescued from Whiporie in northern New South Wales last November. She arrived at the hospital suffering burns to her footpads, smoke inhalation and dehydration and is still being cared for by the dedicated hospital team.
It costs approximately $7000 per koala to treat, rehabilitate and release back to the wild and the hospital rely on the generosity of the public to continue to help our wildlife.
They appreciate wildlife groups and volunteers who assist them.
Currumbin Wildlife Hospital staff are working tirelessly to treat the hundreds of animals requiring care.
The number of patients will continue to increase during the next 6 – 12 months as animals return to their devastated homes. With limited shelter and food sources they will struggle to recover in the wild.
All of funds raised will go directly to the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital. Please donate, share and help us save our little Aussie icons.
