The North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre
Last time you were in Parksville, did you visit the North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre?
Located in Errington, just a ten-minute drive from Ocean Trails Resort, the recovery center is a non-profit rehabilitation facility for wildlife in need of care. From orphaned bear cubs to birds with broken wings, the goals of the center are to reintroduce as many animals back into the wild while educating the public about wildlife and environmental issues. Some common residents of the center are black bears, eagles, owls, turtles, ravens, and more!
The center is following COVID-19 regulations and is open from 9 AM to 4:30 PM daily. Admission is $15 for adults, $6 for children ages 4-12, and free for children 3 and under. Make sure you pay them a visit on your next trip to Ocean Trails!
