Our Impacts in Numbers
Every year, we rescue and resettle 100s of animals from birds to primates.
Animals in Our Care
Our veterinary and animal caretakers undertake a series of activities throughout the year to ensure that all animals are healthy
We work closely with other stakeholders like UWA and communities. However, we believe that rescuing animals is just a short-term solution.
We believe that it is through inspiring the children with trips to to see animals, interpretation talks that we can influence their wildlife awareness.
