Wildlife Warriors Worldwide, the organization set up by Steve Irwin and his family, is currently in the midst of building the “world’s largest wildlife hospital” next door to the Australia Zoo in Queensland. Even better, the massive structure will be built using strawbale — making it one of the biggest such creations using the material in the world. From Treehugger,
“When completed later this year is will be about 1,300 square metres is area. The external walls will be of strawbale, protected by three coats of lime render. Internal walls of rammed earth. Recycled flooring, natural paints and finishes, water recycling, motion sensor lighting, and solar power help round out the eco story.”
Obviously, its green credentials aside, this hospital aims to do a whole lot of good for animals in need. Vets will receive more than seven times the amount of space they’re used to working in and be able to handle many more emergency calls.
