Adelaide Koala & Wildlife Hospital
Adelaide Koala & Wildlife Hospital provides free emergency vet services to injured wildlife at their hospital in Plympton. They take in injured or orphaned wildlife with the aim of rehabilitation and release. They also participate in a wide variety of educational programs for students, carers, veterinary students and the public.
They are a not-for-profit organisation and rely solely on the generosity of others. They are grateful to every individual that contributes to saving the lives of our native wildlife!
There are many ways you can contribute to their work. You can donate or fundraise, or offer in-kind support – everything from trade services and medical equipment to towels and fresh gum leaves goes a long way to helping our wildlife. And whether you’re on a suburban street or out in the bush, if you come across an injured animal, stop and help. Check pouches of deceased wildlife, try to safely capture the animal in a dark, well-ventilated box and phone the hospital immediately. Also remember to keep your dogs and cats restrained during the night when our native wildlife is most active.
Rescuing and caring for injured native animals is something you can do from home! It’s a great option for people who live in remote areas. Get in touch to receive training before attempting to care for animals, to protect both you and the animals.
