Our vets are amazing!
Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is extremely blessed to have such an amazing team of wildlife Vets who treat over 9000 sick and injured wildlife every year. The team are all so passionate about what they do and endevour to treat, rehabilitate and release our beautiful native wildlife back out into the wild where they belong. Along with treating our native wildlife they also have the job of looking after all the animals throughout the park. Our wildlife hospitals’ mission is to be a world leader in the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of sick and injured wildlife, and play an integral role in conservation, research and education projects to ensure the survival of Australia’s iconic species.
Our Fabulous Volunteers
From the 8th–14th May we celebrated Volunteer Week with our army of wonderful volunteers. The work our volunteers do at the Sanctuary is invaluable, from assisting with wildlife rescues at the hospital to working with our horticulture team on maintaining our 27 hectares of lush rainforests.
We would like to thank all our volunteers, past and present, and give special mention to Anthony (pictured above). Anthony has always wanted to work with animals and started at the sanctuary in our Teen Volunteer program. He is now in his 3rd year of volunteering and is working alongside our beautiful reptiles. Anthony comes in twice a week and helps to feed and care for the animals. His favourite animal is our Ridge-tailed monitors, but he looks pretty content with Selma our American Alligator.
Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary operates four separate volunteer programs and full training is provided for all the permanent programs. To find out how you can become a volunteer visit the link below.
