Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors was initially established by Steve and Terri Irwin in 2002 to deliver effective on-the-ground wildlife and habitat conservation and to involve other caring people in its efforts.
The Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital is the proudest achievement and major project of Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors. It is Australia's largest and busiest wildlife hospital and treatment facility, treating over 7,500 sick, injured and orphaned wildlife patients every year. The Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and has the capacity to treat up to 10,000 patients annually with the cost to treat one animal ranging from $100 to thousands of dollars, depending on treatment required.
Along with the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital, Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors provide funding and support to many conservation projects around the world, including protecting the last Sumatran Tigers, educating communities that live with Asian elephants, defending the last remaining Sumatran orangutans, saving cheetah in South Africa, conducting vital research with Tasmanian Devils, and of course helping to save the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve.
