  Ontario Specialized Species Centre  
 

The Ontario Specialized Species Centre is a registered charitable organization located in the Kawarthas, east of Peterborough, Ontario.

Established in 1987, the Centre has three primary objectives; promoting conservation through education, establishing and maintaining captive breeding populations of specialized species and providing a sanctuary to raptors that have been so severely injured in the wild that they cannot be released back into their natural habitat.

During the past 25+ years the Centre has worked with over 40 unique species of animals including birds of prey, bats, primates, reptiles, insects, etc. The Centre is currently home to approximately 300 animals, mainly consisting of birds of prey (raptors) and bats.

The Centre works with species native to virtually every continent. We truly live in a global ecosystem and it’s naïve to think that we can simply ignore environmental issues facing other regions and countries. Every change in the environment, even seemingly small ones can have an effect on the planet and that’s why at the Centre we promote awareness about global and local conservation.

At present the Centre is not open to the general public, although some of the animals kept at the Centre have been trained to be used in public presentations, the majority of the animals are essentially wild and therefore are very sensitive to any disturbance. Only a limited number of trained volunteers are allowed to be on the Centre’s grounds to work with the animals.

The Centre does not receive any government funding; it relies upon fundraising activities such as charitable bingo events and public donations. The staff consists of full time volunteers that are only reimbursed only for travel expenses. All funds raised are directly applied to the care and maintenance of the animals cared for at the Centre.

Art for ConservationTM Commitment Goal:
$764.00 US.

Ontario Specialized Species Centre has been indicated by AFC members as a potential recipient of donations by participating artists. AFC's Art for ConservationTM program, provides a forum to promote artwork that benefits recognized conservation organizations such as Ontario Specialized Species Centre.

AFC members have voluntarily and independently earmarked a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their artwork to Ontario Specialized Species Centre. AFC's Art for ConservationTM program provides a forum to help promote artwork for sale that includes such a commitment. Each artists's commitment is contingent on the sale of their work and the above estimate is a potential total based on the completion of sale of any original work and/or limited editions. The AFC is not involved in any way with artwork sales transactions, nor does it make any guarantees relating to artist commitments. The AFC takes no commission whatsoever from the sale of artwork under the Art for ConservationTM program, unless explicitly indicated.
