One of our beloved native wildlife animals the echidna, undergoing surgery on his tiny beak. Without surgery, this one wouldn’t have been able to survive in the wild. The hospital is still working hard to treat, rehabilitate and release our sick and injured paients. @stevehollandphotography #savingyourwildlife #donatetoday #echidna

Unfortunately, we see this far too often. Turtles brought in with broken shells after being hit by a car. It also costs approximately $400 to repair a turtle’s broken shell. Please lookout for our wildlife on the roads and remember speed kills! #savingyourwildlife #donatetoday 🐢 📷 @stevehollandphotography

This is ‘Freightliner’ the koala. He was admitted into the hospital because unfortunately he was reported ill. He will receive treatment in the hospital and hopefully will make a full recovery so he can be released back into the wild. It costs approximately $7000 to treat a koala suffering from a disease, which is why we need all the support we can possibly get. Donate today via the link in our bio🙏 #savingyourwildlife
