Baby Kangaroo Rescue Centre & Hospital
The Kangaroo Rescue Centre and Hospital has been a dream of Brolga’s for over a decade. Brolga has always seen a need for a hospital in the centre of Australia, as the nearest wildlife hospital is over 1,500km away.
The Kangaroo Rescue Centre and Hospital provides specialised care for kangaroos. It is a place where many baby orphan kangaroos are cared for and raised by volunteer wildlife carers until they are ready for release back to the wild.
The Centre has been built from kind donations from caring people around the world. The building foundations were laid in mid 2015 and the Centre is now in its first stages of operation.
We have raised over $200,000 to date which has gone towards: building the Rescue Centre and Hospital; fencing; plumbing; solar power; veterinarian care; baby kangaroo milk and food. We have a long way to go and future plans include: extension of the rehabilitation facilities to prepare kangaroos for the wild; specialist veterinarian equipment; rescue vehicle; and education programs about the care and rescue of kangaroos.
