Despite appearing active on arrival, the prognosis was not that good during the examination. Unable to stand up and with severe infection, this poor animal underwent a long and complex treatment.
After weeks of treatments, physiotherapy, and the Hospital Team's hard work, the animal's condition turned positive.
It was not easy, but the devotion and hard work of our experts, with the help of the volunteers, following a good and planned rehabilitation process, made this animal able to fly away.

Working with wildlife is always an adventure. Every patient arriving at the Wildlife Hospital has a different story.

From collisions to infections, broken bones, or several injuries, the Team must be prepared to confront whatever the condition is on arrival. It is not always an easy job; sadly, sometimes, the patients cannot survive.

Against everything, the Wildlife Team, with the help of the fantastic volunteers, will always keep fighting and working hard, making a considerable effort to give a second chance to many animals that can be free again.

Unable to stand up on arrival and weak, this animal would have died in nature due to its awful condition.

After a couple of weeks in the Wildlife Hospital with treatments and proper care under the supervision of the Team, this stunning seagull represents how a good and studied rehabilitation process can change the fate of an animal.

After the release, we can only say: May the best of luck be with you!

The expert team gave the green light to continue the process after seeing the excellent progress of the Marsh Harrier at the Wildlife Hospital.

The raptor was moved to the Rehabilitation Center, where its behavior, flying ability, and other parameters will be monitored.

If everything continues right the last step of the progress is the most beautiful: THE RELEASE!

SNAKES AT RISK!

A sensitive citizen who noticed that a domestic cat was attacking this juvenile Large Whip Snake didn't hesitate to call 1190, the Wildlife Support Line.

The Wildlife Rescue Unit, on duty 24/7, brought the snake to the Wildlife Hospital to treat it after it was carefully examined. This juvenile snake was lucky this time; it lacks severe wounds, and the chance of recovery is very high after the treatment is finished.

Many other snakes aren't as fortunate, though. Attacks on snakes by domestic cats are often fatal to them. Their spine can get broken, or they can get severe injuries caused by a cat's sharp teeth, often ending their life.

During this period of the year, with lower temperatures, encounters with snakes are happening more often, as they come to urban habitats seeking warm places to hide.

If you find a snake injured or trapped in a building, do not attempt to capture or kill it; call our Support Line 1190, and the Rescue Team will assist you.

DROWNING MARSH HARRIER UPDATE!
The wet and frightened Marsh Harrier that arrived a few days ago at the Wildlife Hospital was carefully cleaned and dried by our Team. After the first examination, our experts did not see any fractures or wounds. Despite this, it will be kept under observation to ensure that the bodyโ€™s condition and health are good.
If the progression is positive, it will be moved to one of the flying rooms in the Rehabilitation Center, where the staff will monitor its capability to fly and hunt.
