Integrated Projects at Kanyana

Kanyana Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is a not for profit organisation committed to the protection and welfare of native wildlife. Since its inception the centre has more than doubled in capacity to meet the rehabilitation needs of wildlife admitted from the local community and around the state. Approximately 2,000 animal representing 150 species are admitted annually with figures continuing to increase. Kanyana quickly outgrew its first facility and in May 2010 moved to a new site in the former Girl Guide campsite Paxwold, with a purpose built hospital and incorporating a training and education centre. It is run by volunteers from the local community who provide for all the needs of the animals and the operation of the centre.
