Rescuing birds of prey
Pesticide poisonings, car accidents, fighting, shootings: the world can be fraught with hazards for birds of prey.
OWL Rehabilitation Society in Delta cares for eagles, owls, hawks and falcons as they recover from their injuries. They also provide fascinating educational opportunities on-site and at local schools.
In one year, they were able to help 365 birds, thanks to their many volunteers, as well as funding from Vancouver Foundation, which paid for infrastructure and medical equipment at their rural site in Langley. When they release the birds, they’re ready to survive in the wild, restored to their former majesty.
