To report orphaned, ill or injured wildlife: (250) 337-2021 | 1331 Williams Beach Road Merville, BC

The MARS Visitors Centre is now open to the public!


Please join us to view exhibits which will give you an interesting look into our various animal patients. Touch the bones and feathers or play a trivia quiz to test your knowledge. Learn how we can ALL help wildlife and reduce our impact on wild places.

Make sure to take a look at our new Gift Shop full of unique items that will please every member of the family, young and old. There are many great gift ideas perfectly suited to that special person. 

For now admission will be by donation. All proceeds go to the care and maintenance of our wildlife patients.

***Please note that we are open from Thursday to Sunday, and holiday Mondays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and when bird handlers are available we will have an ambassador out to greet you at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on those days. When we have the funds in place to build trails on the property, visiting the outdoor homes (MEWS) of all the ambassador birds will be possible.  We are still a work in progress and we appreciate your patience while we “grow” forward.***
