Lesbian Wildlife Hospital

in Agia Paraskevis



Who are we?

  • Director: Mrs Ineke Peeters-Lenglet, BaPARMED
  • Wildlife Rehabilitator: Mr Joris A. Peeters, MA, Traumatologist

The "Lesbian Wildlife Hospital" is a NON-PROFIT organisation and depends upon the support of its donators.

Ineke Peeters-Lenglet, BaPARMED

What is our aim?

Although it is a WILDLIFE Hospital, FIRST AID is given to EVERY injured animal. If the animal is a domestic one, the owner(s) are sent to the vet afterwards. EVERY kind of INJURED, SICK or ORPHANED WILD animal is accepted, treated and, if possible, released on a safe place.

Visits are welcomed, but please call us before (so we are there when you come).

Joris Peeters, Traumatologist

What is our history?

The Wildlife Hospital started in 1993 as a private idea of the two keepers, joined  the "Animal-lovers Society of Lesbos" in the end of 1995 as a "Centre for injured Birds and Special Kinds of Animals", and is an independent Society since the end of 1996 with its recent name and logo. The Wildlife Hospital is a member of the E.W.R.A. (European Wildlife Rehabilitation Association), is associated with the RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty  to Animals) and is supported by as well the GAWF (Greek Animal Welfare Fund) and the GAR (Greek Animal Rescue) in England and the Foundation "Dierenhulp Venezuela" (Animalhelp for Venezuela) in Holland.

With whom do we cooperate?

The Wildlife Hospital is working together with the private- and State-Veterinarians:

  • Dr. Vet. Mario den Hartog, (NL)
  • Drs. Vet. Marielle Schuurmans, (NL)
