Otis the Owl
Otis the Great Horned Owl is well known in Central Alberta and has acted as MRWC's education owl since 2003.
Medicine River Wildlife Centre's education programs aim to offer information to the public, which will in turn give them the power to make informed choices to help our environment.
Nearly all patients admitted to MRWC's hospital have been injured by human activities such as vehicles, power lines, barbed wire, windows, domestic cats and litter. 60% will be rehabilitated and released back into appropriate habitats.
Welcoming thousands of tourists on our trails and in the education centre each year, "Eco" tourism is an exciting way to bring the world together and make it a kinder place.
The Medicine River Wildlife Centre is a registered charity and receives no regular, ongoing, operational government or corporate funding. The Centre continues to exist only with community support... your support.
