Rehabilitation of injured and ill native New Zealand birds for release into the wild, with a focus on threatened species.


Kaikoura Wildlife Rescue has been operated as a non-profit for the past five years by wildlife biologist Sabrina Luecht, who voluntarily rehabilitated hundreds of patients every year at her own expense.

As this was unsustainable, voluntary efforts are currently being redirected into creating a long-term solution, by facilitating the process of creating a wildlife hospital in Kaikoura.

The vision for Kaikoura Wildlife Hospital is a world-class rehabilitation facility in the seabird capital of the world. The wildlife hospital will treat injured and ill wildlife behind the scenes, while recovering patients will be housed on site in pre-release aviaries, and non-releasable advocacy birds will be on display, alongside an education and visitor centre.

Kaikoura is a biodiversity hotspot, and the centre will be of national importance. The project relies on supporters and sponsors to help raise funds.

We thank you for your support in helping us achieve this vision ♡
