We have dedicated this hospital to those three billion animals that have lost their lives. So we have a plaque out there on a big rock. So this is another reason why we have set up this hospital so that when these animals come in from a fire or other catastrophe there is somewhere and someone, they can go to, who has a degree of expertise in treating wild animals.
“Kangaroos are the mechanical marvels of the natural world, their skeletal structure is extraordinary as is their muscular system and movement. This is why, when Kangaroos are shot or hit by vehicles, their injuries are so catastrophic and a long journey of pain with little, and all too often, no chance of recovery. For this reason I would not wish on anyone the horrific situations and great suffering in relation to these animals we have witnessed while working on the Australian Continent. This is why, helping these animals in the ways Rosemary and Steve are doing is so very very important”. Peter Hylands

In 2020, 32 per cent of Kangaroos killed for commercial gain in NSW were female (150,139). These numbers do not include joeys killed in the process, estimated at an additional 55,000).
