WA’s leaders in wildlife medicine
Wildlife are essential for our ecosystems and life for all other species on Earth, including humans!
Together with our team of dedicated staff and volunteers (and the generous support of our sponsors), our mission is to improve the welfare of wildlife through our animal rescue, treatment, rehabilitation and conservation services.
One major accomplishment is the WA Wildlife Hospital. A purpose built wildlife veterinary hospital open 365 days each year, with qualified, experienced veterinarians on-site each day!
Meet the patients that need our help!
The WA Wildlife Hospital admits more than 6500 animals each year, across 280 different species. Below is just a small selection of our patients, demonstrating the diversity of the species of animals treated and rehabilitated at the WA Wildlife Hospital.
We conserve wildlife through our environmental education programs!
Our wildlife tours for adults and families are an exciting way to get up close and personal with some of Western Australia’s unique wildlife. Guests experience a behind the scenes look at the WA Wildlife Hospital, the busiest wildlife rehabilitation facility in the State, and learn about the important work being done to care for injured and orphaned animals. In addition, guests have the opportunity to meet some of the resident animals that call WA Wildlife home, including Vinnie the Wombat and Banjo and Bindi the Alpine Dingos. Each tour is expertly guided by one of our knowledgeable staff, who will share fascinating insights into the animals and their behaviours. Our educational tours provide an unforgettable experience for guests of all ages, and are a must-do activity for anyone interested in wildlife conservation and animal welfare.
