The Israeli Wildlife Hospital in Ramat Gan is a worldwide leader in its field. Birds, mammals and reptiles get five-star care at the facility before heading back into nature.

Many of the animals are saved with out-of-the-box thinking, including made-to-measure 3D-printed devices and specially designed apparatus.

World-renowned South African conservationist Braam Melherbe recently made this tiny hospital his first stop while visiting Israel.

Join ISRAEL21c’s Viva Press on an auditory behind-the-scenes tour of the wildlife hospital and hear from the staff in the operating rooms.
