Hai-Bulance Animal Ambulance volunteers are here to the rescue!
With your support, our animal ambulance – the Hai-Bulance -will save even more lives every day.
Quick transfer of injured wildlife
The Hai-bulance is operated by the Nature and Parks Authority and was created especially for transferring injured protected wildlife from all over the country – to the only Wildlife Hospital in Israel, located in Ramat Gan.
Every year, hundreds of wildlife animals require immediate intensive care. More than 1000 (!) volunteers find them injured and exhausted. They successfully transfer them to the hospital, where they receive all the professional care they need.
Without measures to rescue and treat thousands of animals on a yearly basis, the ecological diversity in Israel might be severely hindered. There are 200 endangered species in Israel, all of which require immediate and extensive care.
Hai-bulance vehicle – we need 2 more in order to save more animals.
The operation relies on 1,000 volunteers and is in constant need of equipment as the number of injured animals increases.
Injured wildlife animals have so far been treated in 2020, and the numbers have been increasing by 20% each year.
They Need Your Help
Your support can actually save lives! With your assistance we can purchase vital life-saving emergency equipment – both to help us safely capture the injured animal and to administer medical treatment – for use in our 25 transit stations. We will also be able to purchase fuel for the Hai-bulance and food for all the animals.
You have the power to save wildlife animals from certain death and make a real impact on Israel’s unique wildlife.
Changing Reality, One Donation at a Time
Transferring injured wildlife animals requires a great number of resources, especially during busy seasons (such as migration and nesting seasons). That is when dozens of animals need rescuing on a daily basis.
In the past year, about 6,000 animals were located, retrieved and treated. 180 different species received treatment. Every day, an average of 20 animals require medical care and these numbers increase each year, making matters more challenging.
Thanks to the existence of the Hai-bulance, rescuing injured animals is no more left to a couple of lone volunteers. It has become an operation of hundreds of volunteers throughout the country, answering immediately any call of animal distress.
