This bird conservation centre opened its doors in 1996 and is considered the largest songbird rehabilitation centre in Canada. It provides the best care for orphaned and injured birds, which are released back into the wild when they are ready to leave the nest. They aim to protect wild birds through compassionate care, helping to preserve the natural heritage and the bird’s habitat.
Around 1,000 to 3,000 birds are saved annually, with over 100 species of birds coming through their doors. Le Nichoir hosts many educational programs and public events to educate people about wild birds and their natural environment. You can get advice and information from the staff and volunteers, who are pleased to teach you more about the birds. Many useful resources and information can be found on their website, teaching people about what to do to help in certain precarious situations to help the birds. Drop by Le Nichoir and participate in their educational seminars to learn about local birds and their habitat!
