Donate to HELP save Australian wildlife
Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital (BBWH) needs help fundraising for professional vet care for injured, sick and orphaned wildlife.
In two years, BBWH built and sustained a state-of-the-art wildlife veterinary hospital from their permanent base in Knockrow and, when required, they can attend natural disasters like bushfires, floods, or disease outbreaks to provide lifesaving triage, treatment and care for critical masses of impacted wildlife via “Matilda”, Australia’s largest mobile wildlife hospital.
This financial year BBWH will need $1.5 million to continue its ground-breaking work. Their professional veterinary services save wild lives, yet they provide their expertise for free.
BBWH donation drive this November
It costs an average of $555 per wildlife patient for an initial consult, anaesthesia, X-rays, pain relief, fluid therapy and hospitalisation, not including the cost of medicines or surgery.
BBWH is hoping to generate a groundswell of fundraising in November that will see their philanthropic activities through another financial year. We’re spreading the word to invite you to make a tax-deductible one-time or regular monthly donation that helps get BBWH over the line.
All donations over $2 are fully tax-deductible. BBWH holds Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status with the Australian Taxation Office.
No one owns Australia’s wildlife, so a collective effort is needed to protect our native species. BBWH has treated approximately 3,000 injured, sick and orphaned native animals since opening its doors and hopes to be able to continue their much-needed work.
