Visitor Centre

The Raptors offers a compelling interactive experience with amazing birds of prey. Get closer than you ever imagined to these exciting, intelligent birds and learn about their world and how we all benefit when they thrive and survive.  If you are looking for a wildlife adventure and “things to do” in the Cowichan Valley near Victoria on Vancouver Island, please visit us and discover eagles, hawks, owls, falcons, vultures and many more through personal interaction, flight demonstrations and educational courses.

For many this wildlife attraction in Duncan marks their first close encounter with these incredible birds, but often not their last. Birding enthusiasts and curious visitors of all ages return time and again to get up close, have a hands-on experience, and witness these amazing birds of prey as they demonstrate their flying skills and fascinating personalities.

Be sure to check our hours of operation before visiting; timing your visit around a flying demonstration is strongly recommended!
