MARS Book-A-Bird Program

 

If you’re an educator, community outreach group or organization putting on an event and you would like to have MARS ambassador birds attend please fill out the short form below.

Part of the MARS mission is to spread the word about the protection and preservation of wildlife and habitats on northern Vancouver Island and so we love it when the public — particularly young people — can experience our majestic eagles, hawks and owls up close and personal!

Tell us when and where you would like us to be and a MARS volunteer will be in touch.

 

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.
