Wildlife Rescue New Zealand

At the bottom of New Zealand is a hospital like no other. The patients have paws, claws and feathers, but this isn’t a veterinary clinic for pets. The Dunedin Wildlife Hospital caters exclusively for native New Zealand animals, from the iconic kiwi bird and enigmatic kakapo parrot, to plucky penguins and aggressive sea lions. It’s the only facility of its kind, and offers a precious second chance for injured wildlife. Wildlife Rescue New Zealand follows the trials of injured animals as they’re rescued, rehabilitated and released back into the wild, whilst exploring the human journeys of those who dedicate their lives to safeguarding vulnerable wildlife.
