Wildlife vet Dr Lisa Argilla is currently house-hunting in Dunedin as she prepares to move from Wellington to run Wildlife Hospital Dunedin.
Planned in partnership with Otago Polytechnic, the Wildlife Hospital is seeking $60,000 in initial funding to get up and running in January next year.
Lisa is looking forward to making Dunedin her home and putting her energy into getting the wildlife hospital up and running.
"This is my passion, so I can't wait to get started. I want to save as many creatures as I can,'' she told Dunedin's Star newspaper recently.
Wildlife Hospital Dunedin, which will operate in conjunction with Otago Polytechnic's School of Veterinary Nursing, will have the capability to handle up to 500 animals a year.
