Take a walk on the Wild Side at North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre. Located 10 minutes west of Parksville, this world class centre rescues and rehabilitates ill, injured and orphaned wildlife.

Meet our non-releasable animals; Knut the black bear, Emily the Saker Falcon, Sandor the Bald Eagle and many others. Peek into the flight cage and watch rehabilitated eagles build strength to be released back into the wild.

Stroll through the museum of nature and native wildlife gardens, check out interactive kiosks, and learning centres.

Top off your adventure with a visit to the Bear Den Gift shop for unique books and souvenirs.
