Harry Kunz first began his life-long mission in Kuranda caring for flying foxes, before moving to Millstream Estate where he built, from the ground up, the now well-known Eagles Nest Wildlife Hospital. Here, he has direct involvement in the care and rehabilitation of sick, injured or orphaned native wildlife with the hope that each animal can be released back into the wild. For those who are un-releasable due to permanent disability, Eagles Nest becomes there home.
Harry has committed his entire life to rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing the unique native wildlife of Australia. He is one of the few wildlife carers in northern Australia with the knowledge, expertise and facilities to appropriately rehabilitate large raptors, especially wedge-tailed eagles. Harry takes in all animals and has never, and will never, turn a blind eye to any animal in distress.
Eagles Nest provides injured wildlife with a second chance to recover from stressful and life-threatening injuries. Harry lives his life, purely for the benefit of our Australian wildlife and environment. As well as caring for all animals that come into his care, he also collects data on our native Flora & Fauna and researches new approaches and better techniques of treating animals; this enables him to give his animals the highest quality of care.
Harry also provides the community facilities for education where there is learning material, guided tours, information sessions and special training for active carers. His experience and expertise is recognized throughout the world.
Harry is respected among his peers and generously donates his time and money to do what he can to save our native wildlife that would otherwise be left to suffer and die.
With this said, Harry still ages like everyone else, and after numerous operations to put him back together so he can continue his work, Harry has decided that the best thing for Eagles Nest Wildlife Hospital is to find somebody to continue his work. Harry wishes to find a person or a couple that are willing to put in the hard yards, somebody with a passion, understanding and appreciation of wildlife and our environment.
