Are you my mother?
Our team at Currumbin Wildlife Hospital care for, rehabilitate and return to the wild over 9000 animals every year. It’s a job that our wildlife carers are passionate about and it’s a service we offer free of charge to the community, so it’s wonderful to be able to share stories such as this with you all. Phillip is a baby Brown Falcon. Found at the bottom of his tree and unable to fly, he was taken the sanctuary hospital where we cared for him until he was able to be returned to his nest. Getting some help from the team at Habi-Tec to climb Phillip’s very tall tree, he was successfully reunited with his mother and his brother. We have been closely monitoring both chicks since Phillips return and both chicks are thriving. Yesterday mum was seen carrying a snake to the nest to feed the hungry brothers. ... See MoreSee Less
