Saving our southern species: Wildlife Hospital Dunedin

Sign up

Get close to our native southern species as they receive emergency hospital treatment.

Life has always been tough for wild animals. In the past there were no wildlife hospitals but now there are – and we need them. Our vehicles, the windows in our buildings, introduced predators and our own pets can injure our native birds and animals. If we can get them to a wildlife hospital, they have a better chance of surviving. It’s worth doing!

Join us during the week of World Wildlife Day (3 March 2023) to visit the Wildlife Hospital–Dunedin and the people recovering key species, many of whom are volunteers with an interest in protecting New Zealand’s wildlife.

From 27 February 2023 when the online field trip is published, you will be able to travel online to Ōtepoti Dunedin to:

    • get up close to species such as hoiho and kererū receiving hospital care
    • follow the people working to give these creatures a second chance
    • discover why it’s important to help these birds and animals
    • find out what to do if you find an injured or sick native animal.

Sign up now to get additional support and resources, and connect with field trip experts in our live web conferences. Only available on sign-up.

Save the week of 27 February 2023 in your calendar: All the field trip material including video, a Google Earth for Web tour and online quizzes will be available then.
