Volunteers with a passion for wildlife

The South Island Wildlife Hospital is a non-profit facility dedicated to treating and rehabilitating injured wildlife in the South Island of New Zealand. The Christchurch-based Hospital is run and staffed by a team of volunteers including veterinarians, vet nurses and people with an interest in New Zealand's wildlife.
