Become a Member


A MARS membership is a great way of getting a little bit more involved with the MARS Wildlife Rescue Centre. It’s a way of saying you care and shows you are willing to step up and make your support concrete.

Membership entitles you to attend the Annual General Meeting held each year in May. You can help elect MARS board members and vote on the principles and policies that guide the MARS Wildlife Rescue Centre. You will also receive our new revamped eNewsletter.

Most of all, you will be helping us to help wildlife on northern Vancouver Island.

As you can see in the chart to the right, there are several different categories of membership. In each case, your fee goes towards the care and rehabilitation of injured, ill or orphaned birds and animals.

Please complete the form below become a new member or to renew your membership.  You will then be taken to a PayPal payment gateway to complete your membership.


UPDATE from MARS Board of Directors

MARS’ Visitor Centre is now closed in response to the COVID-19 (Corona Virus) pandemic. We will continue to monitor recommendations from our local health authorities and look forward to reopening to the public when it is safe to do so.

The MARS wildlife hospital remains open; staff and volunteers will be here every day to take care of the animals. 

At this time of the year MARS’ volunteers would normally be out in the community raising money for the upcoming “baby” season, e.g. selling raffle tickets, garage sales, special events, etc. to care for fawns, baby birds and baby mammals. Our fundraising activities are now severely limited and we will no longer have revenue from the visitor centre. We understand that this is a difficult time for everyone but any financial support you can spare to maintain our wildlife rescue and rehabilitation program would be very much appreciated. Click here to make a donation >>

Please take care of yourselves and stay well.
