Rescue – Rehabilitate – Release
You are the most important step in an injured bird’s potential recovery and return to the wild. The hazards which cause birds to enter our facilities are often a function of a changing environment. The injuries incurred by these birds are most often human related; and include being hit by a vehicle, electrical contact with power lines, poisoning and gunshot.
As human development continues throughout the Okanagan Valley the environment continues to change and habitat conditions for the wildlife become increasingly stressed. Wildlife rehabilitation is a hands-on conservation effort, and an opportunity to see firsthand the impacts we have had on our wildlife and our environment.
We are a non-profit organization that relies on your support to rescue and rehabilitate raptors. Thank you for your on-going support! Do you have an idea about fundraising or to help create awareness about our organization? Your suggestions are always welcome.
