Healesville Sanctuary Vet for a Day

Our Australian Wildlife Health Centre receives over 1,500 injured and orphaned wild animals each year. Come and work alongside our vets in a unique program on real life cases involving Healesville Sanctuary’s animal collection as well as injured wildlife brought to the hospital.
These school holidays we are celebrating Spring Babies. Discover how our vets look after for the youngest animals in their care.
Vet for a Day allows participants to work in our vet hospital for the day, helping out our vets and learning about one of the most rewarding jobs!
