Bird rehab facility in Vancouver welcomes visitors to its new home

February 8, 2017 by  

A well-known Vancouver facility that gives sick and injured birds of prey a refuge where they can rest and recover has moved to a new home, and the public is invited to stop by and pay the birds a visit.

Raptors Ridge Birds of Prey has taken up new digs in Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. Visitors can observe the hawks, owls, eagles and other birds that are currently being rehabilitated and will hopefully eventually become strong enough to be released back into the wild. Staff will be on hand to provide more information about the residents and, according to the facility’s management, they will be happy to answer any questions. A not-for-profit organization like this can have an assortment of promotional products printed to help raised awareness and generate funds.

The new space gives the birds plenty of room in a temperate rain forest setting, which would be their natural habitat. It’s accessible to visitors throughout the summer, is open each day from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm, and can be a part of a day’s visit to the park. Those who plan on coming out are asked to leave their pets at home, as they can be frightening to the birds.

The rehabilitation facility’s new home can be found at 3635 Capilano Road in North Vancouver. More information is available on the Vancouver Spectacular Nature website.
