Each year, RSPCA Qld’s wildlife team provides care to thousands of sick, injured and orphaned wild animals, and assists in dealing with tens of thousands of wildlife-related calls to the RSPCA’s Call Centre.

In 2012/2013 RSPCA Qld admitted 11, 563 injured or displaced wildlife patients to the RSPCA Wildlife Hospital.

With the rapid expansion of the human population bringing about land-clearing for urban development, wildlife casualties are expected to continue to rise. Therefore, it is essential to continually expand the capacity and resilience of RSPCA's Wildlife focus.
