Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I visit the CWRC?
    To ensure the well-being of the animals in our care and that they do not become accustomed to human interaction, the CWRC is closed to the public and does not offer tours or interactions with the animals. However, we do love sharing our passion for wildlife and what we are doing to protect and help them. The live stream of the patients in The Big Jeezley is our way of inviting you to see and understand the work we do while protecting the animals in our care. You can view the stream here. Education is part of the CWRC's mission, and we would be happy to talk or present to your organization. These talks include beautiful slide shows. No live animals, as our patients are for release. Please feel free to contact us.
  • How is the CWRC funded?
    The CWRC is funded through the donations of our generous supporters. As well as fundraising events such as concerts, markets, calendar sales, and our new online store. Find out more about how you can support us or donate to the CWRC.
  • Can I get involved?
    We are always looking for new team members! From animal care to bookkeeping to construction and everything in between, there are lots of ways to get involved with the CWRC. To find out more visit the Join Us page.
  • How do I get an animal to the CWRC?
    If you have a captured animal in need of care, call the CWRC at 902-893-0253 for help and advice. If you have the animal contained, a drop off will be arranged. If you are uncomfortable or unable to catch the animal we will assist with and contact your local office of the Department of Natural Resources and Renewables. Their after hours and 24hr emergency province wide # is 1-800-670-4357. Please still contact CWRC as well for support. DNRR transports many of our injured raptors and animals to us.
  • I found an animal, can I keep it?"
    No, it is illegal to possess wildlife in Nova Scotia.
  • Do raptors prey on house cats?
    It is highly unusual for raptors to prey on house cats, especially in highly populated areas. Not only are cats generally too big for a raptor to lift, but they fight back; the raptor is more likely to be injured than the cat.
  • What animals do you rehabilitate at CWRC?
    We are fully permitted to rehabilitate birds, reptiles, amphibians, and some mammals. Due to our permits and other concerns there are some animals the CWRC is unable to treat. However, we can still offer advice and help to put you in contact with the proper authority, so please do not hesitate to call.
