Description

Shades of Hope is a hospital and Rehabilitation Centre for injured and orphaned wildlife. Amongst the animals we treat are Raptors (owls, hawks, falcons, osprey, etc.) who fall victim to car collisions, hydro wire impacts or illness. These are brought to us for medical care and recovery. Currently, we provide that medical treatment and care but we cannot provide the final rehabilitation flight testing. This requires a very large building with corners and obstacles that will build up and test a birds agility and strength. Instead of risking the stress of transfer to another facility to perform this final lap of rehab, we are planning to build a flight pen on site.
Our community includes the wildlife that lives within it. As we serve this community, we wish to provide more opportunity for the protection and continuance of our local wildlife species. Our raptors are an important part of our ecosystem and we are committed to ensuring that they receive that second chance to survive and thrive in their natural habitats. This Raptor Recovery Flight Pen will enable us to give them that second chance.
