The Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital treats up to 6800 sick and injured animals every year. From Sea Turtles to koalas, frogs and snakes - the dedicated team of vets, nurses and volunteers work round-the-clock to provide world-class treatment to wildlife in need.
Sadly, 70 per cent of patients are victims of car accidents, dog attacks or human pollution.
While many animals are successfully rehabilitated and released back to the wild, some require full-time wildlife carers for the remainder of their life; others don't survive.
