Our Focus

Animal Wellbeing

We focus on supporting the wellbeing of Australian wildlife through rehabilitation, conservation, education and research

Help us save marine wildlife

Help build an All-species Wildlife Triage Centre

We’re working to expand our marine rescue and rehabilitation services by building an all species wildlife triage hospital right here in Coffs Harbour. The hospital’s education program and visitor centre will raise awareness for our local wildlife and the health of the habitat, and advocate for the conservation of wildlife along the Coffs Coast and nationally.  Our focus is injured, sick, stranded and orphaned marine wildlife including sea turtles, sea birds, sea lions and dolphins but we welcome all wildlife in need of our expert care as a first step to rehabilitation and recovery.
