Animal Talk Foundation

What does the Animal Talk Foundation do?

Australians are very privileged, as up to 80% of our wildlife is found nowhere else in the world. Australia is one of the most important nations on earth for biodiversity, as it is home to more species than any other developed country.  Sadly we also have one of the highest levels of extinction. This is why we must take steps now to preserve our unique wildlife before it is too late.  Small organisations work tirelessly saving sick and injured animals on a daily basis with only the love and devotion of their volunteers who are funded with minimal donations.  The Animal Talk Foundation wants to support these wonderful people and the needs of these animals to make their lives better and their survival a reality.

Our mission

To dedicate and commit to the greater preservation and respect of all Australian animal life by directly supporting wildlife rescue organisations and volunteers.

We accept any native wildlife to our hospital 8am-8pm every day of the year.


The people who volunteer at Kanyana focus their energies in five areas:

  • Caring for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife
  • Wildlife education
  • Captive breeding
  • Research
  • Personal and social wellbeing

Our mission is to engage with as many people as possible across these five areas. We want to offer a solution to everyone in WA who encounters a sick, injured or orphaned animal – bird, lizard or mammal. We want to provide enlightening educational experiences for all ages and all sectors of society including schools, business, government, community and grassroots organisations. We want to set and maintain the highest standards and success rates in the breeding and raising of endangered mammals. We want to be a centre for research into wildlife diseases, rehabilitation and breeding practices. We want to be a place where people can gain meaning and purpose in their lives, according to their life situation and their capacities.
