ABOUT THE "BIG JEEZLEY" FLIGHT FACILITY
The "Big Jeezley" allows raptors to rebuild their strength and stamina during their rehabilitation at the CWRC. While housed in the Big Jeezley, recovering raptors can choose when, for how long, how often and in which direction they would like to fly. The flyway is wide enough that the birds are able to practice their 180° turns. The space also provides a variety of high and low perches and platforms for the birds to rest on.

ABOUT THE COBEQUID WILDLIFE REHABILITATION CENTRE
The Cobequid Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing veterinary medical care to injured and orphaned wildlife. While the CWRC specializes in large birds of prey (eagles, hawks, owls, osprey, etc.), it provides care to all manner of animals. Recent patients have included snapping turtles, foxes, hares and groundhogs.

The CWRC is not open to the public in order to provide the best environment for our patients to recover and be rehabilitated. We do love sharing our passion for wildlife and what we are doing to protect and help them. The live stream of the patients in The Big Jeezley is our way of inviting you to see and understand the work we do while protecting the animals in our care.

SUPPORT THE COBEQUID WILDLIFE REHABILITATION CENTRE
The CWRC is a registered nonprofit charity, run by volunteers, and financed through donations and fundraising. Donations can be made at cwrc.net.

How are the raptors fed?
CWRC staff provides food in the Jeezley. Meals typically consist of fish, although occasionally they include roadkill or chicken.

How do the raptors get water?
