Visitors arrived for meet and greets with raptors and witnessed the release of a rehabilitated bird

The Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society (OWL) held their annual open house to allow visitors to get behind the scenes of the busiest raptor rehabilitation centre in Canada.

The open house runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on May 5 to May 6. At 1 p.m. on both days, OWL will release a rehabilitated bird into the wild.

OWL opened up 70% of their facility to the public, including the medical facility and some of the rehabilitation enclosures.

All donations from the event will be put towards bird care, medical care, food and cage upkeep.

OWL is a non-profit organization that specializes in raptors such as eagles, falcons, hawks, ospreys, owls and vultures.
