Otago Polytechnic

Keen to get stuck in and help the Wildlife Hospital? Want to know more?

Come along to Orientation Week, when the Wildlife Hospital Students’ Association (WHSA) will be recruiting new volunteers to support the facility which, since opening in January, has treated dozens of injured birds, including a rare takahe.

On Thursday February 22 (Clubs Day), WHSA members will be joined by two Pulse Energy Highlanders players on the Otago Museum Reserve (unless it is awful weather, in which case it will be inside the University Link) from 10am-3pm.

Come along to the WHSA tent and join in the chance to play games, compete against others students and win spot prizes, including coffee and food vouchers donated by AllPress, Vogel St Kitchen and the Good Earth, as well as passes to Orokonui Ecosanctuary.

And rugby (and wildlife) fans take note – signed Highlanders merchandise will be given away, too! That’s because the Highlanders have formed a community partnership with the Wildlife Hospital.

As well as putting up posters around Otago Polytechnic and the University of Otago, WHSA executive members will be easily to spot in their Wildlife Hospital T-shirts.

They’re a friendly bunch and welcome anyone to approach them with questions.
