Welcome to Zambi Wildlife Retreat

Zambi Wildlife Retreat will become Australia's first and only animal welfare establishment that can Rescue, Rehabilitate, Re-home and offer Shelter to a wide range of species

While our focus will be on exotic animals needing retirement from zoo breeding programs, circus and private ownership, we will also provide care and shelter to domestics, farm animals and native wildlife. Emergency rescue is available across all species

Managed by highly qualified staff and volunteers, Zambi Wildlife Retreat ensures the health, saftey and dignity to all animals in our care. LOTL Rescue, established in 2012, is the founding company of Zambi Wildlife Retreat. 

 ZWR operates as a registered charity in NSW (Australia). CF23435
