A safe haven for native animals

Our patients recover at our centre after treatment at Wildbase Hospital, they change regularly as they recover and are released back into the wild.

Our resident animals are with us all the time so there is always something to see.

I was found unable to fly

Where have I come from?
I was found in the Wellington Region

How have the vets helped me?
I was treated at The Nest te Kōhanga at Wellington Zoo for a dislocated coracoid. I was given pain medication and tasty kai. I am now here to improve my flight fitness before release.

I was sent for release on the 29th of June
