Showcasing Australia’s busiest Wildlife Hospital based at RSPCA Queensland in Brisbane, you’ll be able to watch our iconic animals rescued, treated in our hospital, rehabilitated, and released!
Last year alone over 27,000 animals required care at our Queensland Wildlife Hospital. Most of the patients were victims of habitat loss, disease, road trauma, dog attacks or natural disasters. To think ten years ago the same hospital was treating around 8,000 animals a year!
Our dedicated team of professionals and volunteers work around the clock to save vulnerable and endangered species. Now you can see first hand what goes on behind the scenes at such a busy animal hospital!
But this vital work to save our precious wildlife is only possible thanks to community support and generous donations. If you’d like to donate towards the great work being done by our dedicated rescue and wildlife teams at RSPCA Queensland, visit https://www.supportrspcaqld.org.au/lovenature
To watch Wildlife ER, save the date for February 8, 7:30pm on SBS Australia. You can see just how your kindness helps us make a difference to the lives of wild animals!
Did you know, we’re also helping wildlife across Australia in so many other ways too!
Be an integral part of a new era in animal care & welfare in South Australia: RSPCA Animal Care Campus (SA). A brand new, purpose-built campus, it will house South Australia’s first and only 24/7 Wildlife Hospital and Veterinary Centre.
The campus will be accessible for native fauna rescue groups across the state to bring in injured wildlife for treatment, and will be the central hub for the more than 1,300 community foster care volunteers. The $27m development is expected to double the number of animals RSPCA South Australia cares for each year.
Spanning seven hectares, comprising the wildlife hospital, modern companion animal care services and accommodation, a multifunctional community education centre and centralized RSPCA South Australia rescue, inspectorate and operations centre. Learn more here.
RSPCA Victoria works in partnership with Zoos Victoria to support wildlife welfare across the state. Since 2020 the partnership has been focused on increasing capacity across Victoria to care for wildlife in emergencies, disasters and wherever specialist wildlife care is needed. Recent highlights include the opening of the RSPCA Koala Ward at Werribee Open Range Zoo in 2022, the launch of a new Wildlife Response Unit based at Healesville Sanctuary and a new laboratory there. Together with work underway at Melbourne Zoo, this is creating a linked wildlife hospital network across the state to support better wildlife welfare.
