Duncan Day Trip - Pacific Northwest Raptors

Pacific Northwest Raptors is a bird centre just north of Duncan BC that specializes in training and working with captive-bred birds of prey, training bird handlers and in educating the public about raptors. The centre is dedicated to the conservation of birds of prey and the centre is home to birds of prey such as falcons, bald eagles, owls and hawks. Many of the captive bred birds fly free daily and come back to their home at the centre. The only birds that are not released are those that are unable to hunt or fly for themselves. These birds have a permanent home and care at the centre. The centre also provides rehabilitation of injured raptors.
A highlight at the centre is the flying educational demonstrations. The show is exciting and you get close up and personal with the raptors. This is a great day trip from Victoria.
