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 Shannon in the Horowhenua District

How have the vets helped me?
I was taken to Wildbase Hospital where I was treated for head trauma, issues with my right leg and carpal swelling after flying into a window. I was placed on cage rest with pain medication and tasty kai. I am now here to work on my flight strength and silent flight before release.

I was released on October 5th!
