FOR NATIVE SPECIES
The Department of Conservation has overarching responsibility for dealing with injured native animals throughout New Zealand. You can call the DOC hotline for further information on what steps to take.
In the Manawatū, Wildbase Hospital will take in all native species for triage and medical care. There is no fee for this service. Individuals who are successfully treated and deemed likely candidates for re-release back to the wild will be transferred to Wildbase Recovery for rehabilitation.
