Create a Personal and Lasting Legacy for Wildlife

It is apparent that Vancouver Island has among the top dozen fastest growing municipalities in British Columbia. These high rates of local population and industrial expansion guarantee that the demand on wildlife and our facility will increase proportionately. That is why your support is needed more than ever.

Our major projects have involved substantial capital costs at the outset. Seed money for unique and ambitious undertakings such as the Eagle Flight Cage, the Museum of Nature, and the Vancouver Island Bear Rehabilitation Program has come from charitable bequests from donors wishing to continue their support in perpetuity.

Bequests are a form of planned Giving. Such gifts are mutually rewarding for the donor and beneficiary alike. They allow us to initiate projects otherwise beyond our reach, and they provide our donors with immediate and long-term tax advantages of benefit to them and their families. Planned Giving bears witness to deep commitment and creates a lasting legacy for generations of wildlife.

Planned giving involves very personal and individual priorities and choices.

Because of caring individuals NIWRA has developed and grown into a world class wildlife rehabilitation centre. Please consider naming the North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre in your will.

When it comes to giving some people stop at "nothing"

So we say, Do your giving while you're living, then you'll be knowing where it's going!" Rick Warren

The North Island Wildlife Recovery Association was formed in l985 "  to establish a facility for the care of ill, injured and orphaned wildlife and to educate the public on wildlife and environmental issues."
