The only hospital for animals in Agia Paraskevi village on Lesbos, Island of Greece

What is our history

The WildlifeHospital started in 1993 as a private idea of the two keepers, joined the "Animal-lovers Society of Lesvos " in the end of 1995 as a "Centre for injured Birds and Special Kinds of Animals", and is an independent Society since the end of 1996 with its recent name and logo. The WildlifeHospital is a member of the E.W.R.A. (European Wildlife Rehabilitation Association), is associated with the RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) and is supported by the GAR (Greek Animal Rescue) in England and the Foundation Dierenhulp” (“Animal-care) in Holland.
