The Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society is a non-profit organization whose staff and volunteers are dedicated to public education and the rehabilitation and release of injured and orphaned raptors.
The facility specializes in raptors (eagles, falcons, hawks, ospreys, owls, & vultures). Raptor patients at O.W.L. number over six hundred each year and are sent to O.W.L. from all over British Columbia, other provinces, and the U.S.A, with the majority of the birds arriving from the Lower Mainland with the help of a network of volunteers. We also get assistance from conservation officers, veterinary clinics, police officers, highway maintenance crews, and other community groups.
You can visit us at O.W.L. and see many of our permanent residents. You will learn how they came to be at our facility, the jobs they preform at the facility, and about the different species of raptors you can find in British Columbia. This portion of the tour is outdoors and occurs rain or shine, so don’t forget to dress for the weather!
