Call the NPA Hotline- *3639
If you have found an injured wild* animal that appears to need assistance, please call us and bring it in the earliest possible time to the Hospital.
In the event that the transfer of the animal is delayed, place it inside a closed box with soft material (i.e. a towel, clothing or leaves) and place the box in a warm, dark and quiet area until it can be brought in for treatment. Please do not feed or give water to the animal unless you obtain specific instructions from the Wildlife Hospital staff.
When you find a wild animal it is important to keep these rules in mind:
- Safety above all! Wild animals have a lot of strength, agility and superb instincts and may inflict damage or injury in an attempt to protect themselves.
- If you happen to find a cub or hatchling in nature, it is most likely it was left there by his parents and does not need treatment. Leave it in its place. If you fear it is in danger, watch from a distance and if it still seems that the cub or hatchling is in life threatening danger please contact us before taking it for treatment.
- A wild animal belongs in the wild, and under no circumstances is it to be kept at private ownership without proper authorization.
- A wild animal from nature will be under a lot of stress which may cause it to die. Even if this behavior is not observed, unnecessary contact is to be avoided.
Wild animals are taken in for treatment in the Hospital Center at the Safari in Ramat-Gan, apart from ruminants (gazelles, ibexes ect.) which are brought to the National Park Afek- Antipater Fort (Rosh Ha'ayin area(
Before bringing the animal to the hospital please call the Environment Hotline *6911(available 24 hours a day)
If you are planning on leaving the injured wildlife at the Safari gates, please ask the guard for the form you need to fill in. The form includes details which will help us get a better understanding of the animal’s history. Alternatively, leave the following details on a separate piece of paper attached to box in which you are leaving the animal: your name, contact details, location that you found the animal, date you found the animal, date you brought the animal to treatment, any other additional information on the state you found the animal and if you treated it in anyway (ie standing, able to fly, lying down, received food, antibiotics atc)
