Nestled in the district of Errington on Vancouver Island, NIWRA is a park like setting with a peaceful rustic atmosphere.    When visiting the centre you will be able to view eagles, several species of owls, falcons, hawks, ravens, and black bears.

During the summer months, live raptor presentations are available for you.

The centre is a world class wildlife rehabilitation facility specializing in raptors and black bear. Magnificent eagles can be viewed through one way glass in the largest flight cage if its kind in Canada.

You will  learn about Vancouver Island wildlife by booking a large group tour or just visit the centre on your own.  Make sure you visit our gift shop.

Volunteers are essential to the centre, so be sure to consider giving of your time to this worthwhile cause. Even the youth can participate in volunteering by joining our Green Teen Junior Docent Program.

This is truly a "Wildlife Experience for the Whole Family"
