Wildbase Recovery

The need

Threats such as habitat loss, invasive species, disease and global warming mean many of our unique species are endangered. Even our common native birds are rare by world standards.
Wildbase Hospital is New Zealand’s only dedicated wildlife hospital for the medical and surgical treatment of native wildlife. 50% of animals treated at the hospital are threatened or endangered species.

Despite its importance to a number of recovery programmes, Wildbase Hospital does not have the full rehabilitation facilities required. As a result, wildlife are held in hospital for longer than ideal.

Central Energy Trust Wildbase Recovery will provide purpose-built aviaries, designed to help individual native fauna recover from illness and injury, through world-leading care by Massey University veterinary staff.

Public will be able to view patient journeys back to wellness, connecting generations of New Zealanders directly with the conservation of some of our most endangered species.
