      • Currumbin Wildlife Hospital has released over 140,000 native animals back into the wild since the first vet started worked in 1989. 

      • The Wildlife Hospital treats nearly 600 wild koalas every year. 

      • It takes $7,000 to treat, rehabilitate and release one koala back to the wild.

      Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation needs to raise $1.8 million annually to save Australia’s wildlife and find cures for devastating diseases threatening our native species such as the koala. 

      By raising funds and awareness Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation aims to continue its mission of protecting and preserving our native wildlife for future generations to enjoy.
