The Wildlife Hospital, Dunedin treats sick and injured native New Zealand species right here in the heart of Aotearoa’s wildlife capital. Their expert veterinary team patches up more than 500 patients every year, returning the majority of them back to the wild where they belong.
On Creature Feature, we shine a spotlight on one of the Wildlife Hospital, Dunedin’s extra special guests.

Our first guest is a kakī/black stilt. They are one of the fussiest patients and definitely the meep-iest.
Bravo the kākāpō is a repeat offender. His species is one of New Zealand’s rarest and most charismatic.
