Bonorong Wildlife Hospital
A tasmanian First
Bonorong is working towards the creation of Tasmania’s first fully dedicated wildlife veterinary clinic to provide care to the hundreds of animals we rescue each year. It will be free for the public to drop off wildlife for care and rehabilitation.
As of 2017, we are completing the final fit out in preparation for veterinary board approval.
We can’t wait to show you more very soon!
The Sad Truth
- Native animals left suffering on the roadside is a confronting ethical issue for the community
- While vet clinics do their best to help injured wildlife they often do not have the time or the specialist training and facilities that are needed
- Native animals die from stress very quickly so being kept in the same area as cats and dogs can hinder their recovery
- Carers are currently paying for all animal treatment out of their own pocket including special milk formulas, medications, surgeries, pouches, heat pads, enclosures etc.
Bonorong is building Tasmania’s first ever wildlife hospital, which will be free for all wildlife and staffed by a full-time vet.
This project is a true community effort and has been based on the generosity of a huge number of donors and supporters.
