about the wildlife hospital

about the wildlife hospital

It all began with Steve's mother, Lyn Irwin. A pioneer in wildlife care and rehabilitation whose dream was to build a facility that could take care of wildlife in need. In her memory, Steve and Terri renovated a small avocado packing shed into a functioning wildlife hospital. Four years later, on Steve Irwin Day 15 November 2008, a brand new facility was opened to house the ever-increasing number of wildlife patients.

Equipped with a surgical theatre, x-ray room, intensive care units and pathology lab, the dedicated group of wildlife veterinarians and nurses are able to provide specialised care to wildlife, at no cost to the public.
