How You Can Help

The pressures on our wildlife are continuing to increase and the numbers of these animals needing veterinary services is growing. Evidence shows that early triage assessment and treatment by a specialist veterinary team results in better animal welfare outcomes and improved release rates. We urgently need to scale up our local and regional capacity to care for sick and injured wildlife as the extinction crisis escalates. There are a number of ways you can help, become a Friend of NRWH, a member, or donate. Every life we can save counts.


Become a Friend of NRWH

Friends of NRWH (Friends) is the fundraising arm of NRWH. Strategically separate from hospital operations, it’s function is to generate fundraising opportunities, sponsorship arrangements, and build other external relationships that maximise the inflow of funds.

The Friends program will also look to structure varying levels of membership of NRWH that will be advised in due course.
