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 flew into a window

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

How did the vets help me?
I was taken to The Nest te Kōhanga at Wellington Zoo where I was treated for a fractured coracoid and internal parasites. I am now here to work on my flight fitness and gain back some weight before release.

I was released on November 15th
