Mothers Day gift: adopt a baby bird!

Adopt a baby bird on your mom’s behalf and support our bird monitoring programs.

There have been significant changes to wildlife habitat in North America over the past 100 years. For many bird species, this change has resulted in a loss of their food and nesting sites. In Stanley Park, SPES’s habitat enhancement projects aim to improve habitat for these species, and involve collaboration with the Vancouver Park Board, other professionals, and volunteers.

Look for tree swallow nest boxes on Lost Lagoon and wood duck nest boxes at Beaver Lake; watch for our staff and volunteers monitoring these nest boxes during the breeding season along with the Great Blue Heron colony and the four eagle nests in the Park. All these observations inform the Park’s ecological management plans to support local wildlife.
