About Healesville Sanctuary’s work to rescue and rehabilitate wildlife

Healesville Sanctuary’s wildlife hospital, the Australian Wildlife Health Centre, is one of Australia’s largest and our vets and nurses treat thousands of wild animals every year, as well as looking after the health of every animal that calls the Sanctuary home.

Last year, the wildlife hospital treated more than a dozen koalas injured in the Black Summer bushfires, with some needing intensive care for months to heal their wounds, receiving around-the-clock care.

Wine & Wildlife helps Healesville Sanctuary continue this important work.
