Did You Know?
Our department of birds and exotic animals at Centre Vétérinaire Laval is a drop-off point for the rehabilitation center for turtles in Quebec, managed by the Éco-Nature organization, as well as a drop-off point for injured birds of prey, in collaboration with the Birds of Prey Clinic.
Eco-Nature is a non-profit organization whose mission, among other things, is to protect and rehabilitate native turtles in Quebec.
The Birds of Prey Clinic is the center in Quebec that deals with the rehabilitation and release of injured birds of prey that is mandated by the Union Québécoise de la Réhabilitation des Oiseaux de Proie (UQROP). It is the only organization in Quebec with a mandate for the rehabilitation of birds of prey.
If you or someone you know finds a native turtle or an injured bird of prey, you can bring it directly to Centre Vétérinaire Laval so that the animal can be stabilized before it is transferred to the organization.
