Wildlife in need of help
For questions regarding native wildlife or to report an injured or orphaned wild animal in Vienna, please call the hotline +43 1 4000 49090.
The wildlife hotline is available daily (including Sundays and holidays) from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
In principle all queries regarding veterinary care for injured wildlife or animals in danger (e.g. wild boar in the swimming pool) should be referred to Magistrate (MA) 60 in Vienna (see info Wildtiere in Not), or in other provinces to the local vet or the police.
To the extent possible we provide information on raising young wild animals, and about wildlife biology, as well as about relevant veterinary-medicine topics.
