Wildlife recovers from injury

We’ve had two creatures recently recover from different injuries, an Eastern Spinebill from a window strike and a Green and Golden Bell Frog, which had a broken femur.

Green and Golden Bell FrogThe Endangered Green and Golden Bell Frog was captured and taken to Taronga Wildlife Hospital for treatment.

It was confined to a small space to restrict movement, received regular x-rays and monitored during the healing process. The lucky frog was microchipped and released back into the Brickpit.

 

 

 

Eastern SpinebillWhilst traveling between habitats, an Eastern Spinebill flew into a Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) window at Sydney Olympic Park. It was rescued by a CBA staff member and reported to Sydney Olympic Park Rangers.

After 45 minutes in a box in a dark room, the concussed bird began moving again. Rangers released the honeyeater in Bicentennial Park.
