The Hills Wildlife Sanctuary is poised to become Sydney’s hub for
biodiversity conservation, education, and threatened species recovery. Established in 1977, the sanctuary has a rich history of wildlife care and advocacy and is conveniently located on 35 acres of pristine natural bushland just 45 minutes’ drive from the Sydney CBD.


This strategic vision comprises a grand plan for the development of the site as well as a pragmatic short-term approach to begin scaling up the operations of the sanctuary to assist in dealing with future natural disasters and aiding threatened species recovery efforts.

Threatened Species Recovery

Our goal is to support threatened species recovery programs with a special focus on micro-species, including reptiles, amphibians, small mammals, birds invertebrates, and fish.

We will foster partnerships with universities and leading experts and work closely with other sanctuaries in the network to amplify the impact of our combined efforts.​​

Hills Wildlife Hospital

Our grand vision is to construct a world-class state-of-the-art Wildlife Hospital to provide specialised care and treatment for injured native wildlife. Staffed with full-time  wildlife veterinarians and vet nurses, the hospital will operate 7 days a week and help relieve the significant burden placed on private veterinary practices to treat native wildlife. 

Critical Infrastructure Enhancement

Upgrade existing facilities and begin training teams in emergency response. There are already a number of basic facilities on site, however more specialised rehabilitation enclosures are desperately needed as well as upgrades to fencing, roads and bushfire safety.

With your support we can make our vision a reality.

Emergency Response Centre

We are working toward establishing an Emergency Response Centre for rapid wildlife rescue and rehabilitation efforts before, during and after natural disasters. The centre will be equipped with cutting-edge technology, equipment, infrastructure, vehicles and trained personnel to address urgent conservation needs in times of crisis.
