A bequest enabled the Taronga Wildlife Hospital to purchase a digital radiography system. The system is portable, allowing veterinarians to take equipment out of the Hospital to radiograph animals in their enclosures.
If you come across injured wildlife take some simple steps, such as keeping the animal warm and minimising noise – then contact a wildlife group, veterinary hospital or one of Taronga's wildlife hospitals.
When an injured animal is brought to one of Taronga’s Wildlife Hospitals, the veterinarians’ ultimate aim is its release back into the wild. Wherever possible the rescuer is involved in that exciting event!
