North Island Wildlife Recovery

'Bardo' the Barred Owl

Eighteen year old 'Bardo' the Barred Owl was recently on hand at the Expo 50 show to raise awareness of the good work being done by the North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre located in Errington.

The centre has two main focuses, one being wildlife rehabilitation and the other being public education. They care for injured, ill and orphaned wildlife which they accept all year round with a specialty in raptors and black bears.

The center features a museum of nature and a 140 foot long eagle flight cage where the public can view recovering bald eagles.

The centre has an adoption program with allows the public to sponsor an animal/bird at the centre for only $25 per year. For more information about the recovery centre visit their website HERE.
