Working together to “Help Wild Lives Live”
WA Wildlife receives no state or federal government funding (excluding ad hoc grants) and was the first designated wildlife veterinary hospital in Western Australia. Each year the WA Wildlife Hospital treats and rehabilitates more than 6500 sick and injured animals.
