Threatened Butterfly species found at Currumbin Sanctuary!
Staff were ecstatic to find three larvae of the threatened Richmond Birdwing Butterfly at last week. Historically, this beautiful butterfly was a common sight throughout the region but it has not been seen at the Sanctuary for over 5 years. The butterfly has significantly declined on the Gold Coast due to urbanisation and cultivation of the introduced Dutchmans Pipe vine (Aristolochia elegans), which is poisonous to the larvae.
Keeper Amy Hamilton noticed the threatened larvae were on a small host vine and in danger of running out of food. Quick thinking saw the larvae transported to a butterfly safe-house by Jacqui Seal from the Department of Environment and Heritage (EHP) and returned yesterday to a much larger vine on Sanctuary grounds. Let’s hope our Sanctuary oasis can provide a safe home for these rare butterflies for years to come. ... See MoreSee Less

School captains from St Hilda’s school #GoldCoast visited the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital today with a special delivery of eight boxes of sheets, towels and pillowcases that were collected for the wildlife hospital.
Along with these much needed items, the wildlife hospital was also presented with a cheque for $1750.00! As part of the visit, the kids were taken on a guided tour throughout the facility by our Veterinarian staff member Tamara, allowing them to get up close and personal with some of our patients. The tour also provided them with a first-hand look at the work that is being done by the wildlife hospital and allowed them to see just how important their fundraising and donations were.
The fundraising efforts are a testament to the dedication shown by all involved and present crucial funding and much needed items that ensure the continual running of the wildlife hospital.
Currumbin Wildlife Hospital has treated approximately 8000 sick and injured wildlife in the past year alone and has released over 50,000 native animals back into the wild.
The donated items along with the cheque will go directly towards caring for many of the new patients that are admitted on a daily basis. If you or your school are interested in getting involved, head to our website www.cwhf.org.au for ways to donate.
