Wildbase Recovery

WIldbase vets treating kiwi, takahe and a gecko Wildbase Recovery will be a group of purpose-built recuperation aviaries in the Victoria Esplanade in Palmerston North.

In a unique collaboration, Wildbase Recovery will be built and owned by Palmerston North City Council and co-occupied and managed by Massey University's Veterinary School. 

Get up close with New Zealand's wildlife

Wildbase Recovery will provide shelter and care for native wildlife to rehabilitate from illness and injury after treatment at Massey University's Wildbase Hospital. In this safe and nurturing environment animals will be viewed by the public where their journey back to wellness will engage generations of New Zealanders directly with the conservation of some of our most endangered species.

A collaborative approach

Wildbase Recovery is a collaboration between Massey University and Palmerston North City Council, with support from DOC, Rotary and Rangitane o Manawatu.

Wildbase Recovery Community Trust is a Charitable Trust tasked with raising funds which will be granted to Palmerston North City Council (PNCC) for the sole purpose of building, operating and maintaining this community funded wildlife recovery centre.
