I was outside Australia Zoo yesterday, waiting for my daughter and decided to pop my head into the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital. They had a sign at the entrance - $2 for a sneak peak. Entering the foyer of a modern reception area I was greeted by a helpful staff member. I was shown a door which led to a show room with glass walls, where you could see injured koalas in various stages of recovery.

I was impressed with the obvious care and cleanliness of the place. The attention to detail in the presentation of conservation and preservation issues, like a glass cabinet filled with hooks and line, plastic bags, dumped by carelessness causing injury and pain to animals and a video showing rescues by Wildlife Warriors and a large turtle shell. The staff said there had been 7000 injured animals admitted to the hospital last year.
I have put my name down to volunteer and encourage everyone to become involved by becoming a Wildlife Warrior. Donate, volunteer and educate yourself and your children about recycling and become caretakers of our beautiful country - to ensure that our children may also enjoy the diversity and variety of our wildlife. You may want to take a trip out there with your family and take the tour as well.
I know how u feel about the hospital it's such an amazing place the staff and volunteers do an awesome job I owne my own business but take one day a week to help out at the zoo and the hospital and I have to say its the best day of my whole week ...
