Taronga Wildlife Hospitals

Support Taronga’s Wildlife Hospitals.

Taronga's two wildlife hospitals provide care for the well-being of our animals in the zoo as well as emergency assistance to sick or injured animals in the wild. Coming through the hospital doors are a number of native animals such as marine turtles, koalas and platypus amongst many others. As these numbers continue to grow Taronga has taken the initiative to increase our capability to save our wildlife.

With your help today Taronga can work towards providing Australian wildlife the best possible care.

Taronga’s two Wildlife Hospitals in Sydney and Dubbo provide vital emergency assistance to sick and injured animals from the wild. Each year, we see native animals like Marine Turtles, Koalas, Platypus and many others coming through our doors.

With your help today we can provide Australian wildlife with the best possible care.

All donations of $2 or more are fully tax-deductible for Australian residents.

Your donation today can make a huge difference.

Many of the animals we see have been injured by people, boats and cars, are suffering from disease, or have been impacted by natural disasters like bushfires, droughts or floods.

More animals are being cared for at Taronga's two Wildlife Hospitals than ever before.

Since it’s opening in the 1970s, our Wildlife Hospitals have cared for:

  • 1,500+ sick, injured and orphaned native animals each year treated at our existing Wildlife Hospitals
  • 120 surgeries per month
  • 150 Koalas treated during the 2019/20 NSW bushfires
  • 7 native species have been saved by Taronga from extinction
  • 80+ Marine Turtles rehabilitated and released annually
  • 50,000 animals released back into the wild to date
