We receive approximately 400 injured birds of prey annually. The mean value of the care given to each bird is 350$. We thus must find every year 125 000$ to fulfill our rehabilitation activities and more than 200 000$ for our educational mission.
Our guests at the Birds of Prey clinic are quite hungry, more than 800 mice and 150 chicks are required each week to feed them.
Our organization does not receive any recurrent operating funding and the future of our activities is dependent upon our limited autonomous revenues (gifts, sponsorships, membership fees, conference's income, sale of promotional items).
Nobody is charged for the cares given to a wild bird found injured. Everything is done as an act of a good samaritan.
A special gift, a unique gesture!

It is with great pleasure that we will organize a «Release a bird» moment adapted to your event or your availability.
We can match a release with one of the following choices:
- the presence of a UQROP's presenter with ambassador birds
- the presentation of one of our conferences
- animation of a booth on birds of prey
- participation to the program «Adopt-A-Bird»
- a personalized visit of Chouette à voir! if the release is done on our site
- several opportunities are offered!
Cost: 1 000$
This includes the release of the bird, the activities surrounding the release and our traveling within a radius of 200 km of St-Hyacinthe. It is possible to give a tax receipt in the amount equivalent to the difference between the amount paid and the value of the activities chosen around the event.
UQROP is a non-profit organization registered as a charitable organization and as such can give out tax receipts.

We need at least 2 volunteers every day, 7 days a week, as well as during the week-ends in September and October.
Of course, as a volunteer, you are free to come and help us as often as you want! Volunteers will follow a brief training in order to increase their knowledge on birds of prey.
You will have the opportunity to educate our visitors on birds of prey conservation and you will also be allowed to handle some of our ambassador birds.
*To be a volunteer, you must be at least 18 years-old or be accompanied by an adult.*
