This weekend we were fortunate enough to partake in a private tour of the Wildlife Hospital at Australia Zoo.
Tea Time is a proud sponsor of this facility, with many customers choosing the Wildlife Warriors for their Chari-Tea donation.
Shari, the Development Manager at the Hospital was our tour guide for the day and her benevlolence was unquestionable . We were taken around the facility and saw everything from the Animal ICU to the Koala Kindergarten. We were happy to see that our funds were being used to purchase formula to feed sick koalas.
Some fun facts for our customers who are considering the Wildlife Warriors as their next Chari-Tea donation:
Up to 100 wildlife emergency calls are received daily
Up to 30 different species are admitted to the hospital daily
An average of 70 koalas come through the hospital every month
Approximately 70% of patients are victims of car accidents or domestic pet attacks
The cost to treat one animal ranges from $380 - $1500 and up to $5000 for one koala
There are over 70 volunteers working at the hospital
