Thriving in the outdoors demands skills that many of us no longer have, such as building a fire or finding enough tree bark to feed your horse. Spark your instincts with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $55 for a one-year adoption of a northern spotted owl and a guided tour for two (a $110 total value)
- $65 for a one-year adoption of a northern spotted owl and a guided tour for four (a $130 total value)
Guides lead small groups through a two-hour tour of the wildlife area, spread across 300 acres of rainforest in Fraser Valley. Visitors learn about preserving habitats and protecting and repopulating endangered species. The adopt-an-owl program allows visitors to support endangered northern spotted owls with a year's worth of food and keeper care. Customers also receive an adoption certificate and photo of their owl.
Mountain View Conservation & Breeding Centre
Today, “1,141 of the 5,487 mammals on Earth are threatened with extinction.” But collective efforts and targeted conservation can help save them. Conservationists Gord and Yvonne Blankstein truly believe in these restorative efforts, and they founded Mountain View Conservation & Breeding Centre in 1986 to help rare and exotic species breed, learn calculus, and return to the wild. From its 300-acre campus in the Fraser Valley, Mountain View safeguards several species, including some of the most endangered wildlife species in British Columbia—the Northern spotted owl and the Vancouver Island marmot–along with 35 species of exotic birds breeding at the conservatory. Once animals can survive, staff members return them to their natural habitats around North America. Mountain View also sponsors educational tours of its facility to raise awareness about conserving wildlife and natural habitats.
