Spirit Bear Coffee Company is committed to environmental awareness and social initiatives, and as a part of this commitment, we are proud to support the Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society (OWL). OWL is a registered non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing injured and orphaned raptors, while also educating the public on their importance and conservation.
We are honoured to serve coffee with a purpose to support their mission of caring for these incredible animals.
How OWL Supports Wildlife Rehabilitation
Raptors are birds of prey such as hawks, eagles, falcons, osprey, and vultures. These birds all have a hooked beak, sharp talons, keen eyesight, and eat a carnivorous diet. Although these birds are higher on the food-chain, they suffer from external, usually human caused, stressors. High on this list are cats, electrocution, entanglement, habitat loss, getting hit by vehicles, intra/interspecies fighting, orphaning, lead poisoning, rat poison, and window/mirror collisions. Most raptors that come to OWL are there due to human-caused injuries and issues.
While not all raptors successfully complete rehab, the ones that remain behind aid their kind by educating the public or fostering orphans. The fostering of orphans is important because it prevents young raptors from imprinting on humans which would be detrimental to their return to the wild. These resident raptors are available for in-school educational visits and for public viewing at events such as the OWL Open House.
