Currumbin Wildlife Hospital
Currumbin Wildlife Hospital celebrates its 10th year in the building it occupies at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. The Hospital has been operating for 30 years but modern facilities now ensure the best care for its wildlife patients.
The Hospital is one of the busiest wildlife hospitals in the world, admitting over 11,000 animals a year. This includes around 500 koalas, which are treated, rehabilitated and released back into the wild, a service that is provided free of charge to the community.
The Hospital is supported by Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation to help raise the funds to operate such a large Wildlife Hospital. The Foundation relies on donations from visitors to the Sanctuary, the local community, generous personal supporters and corporate partners to continue its vital work.
Donations can be made through www.currumbinwildlifehospital.org.au Currumbin Wildlife Hospital is owned by National Trust of Australia (Queensland), a charity committed to protection, conservation and celebration of Queensland’s environment, cultural and built heritage.
