March 12 at 9am PST- March 14 at 9pm PST
The Raptor Rescue Society is a non-profit wildlife rehabilitation centre located in the Cowichan Valley. We are dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing wild raptors and other birds from all over lower Vancouver Island.
Raptors are some of the worlds most incredible aerial predators. At PNWR they strive to learn as much as they can about them, and share that information with everyone they can. They hope this will help raise awareness of their importance and value in the environment, help to promote conservation, and ultimately help to preserve our natural wildlife!
Soul Song: A Preliminary

Soul Song was originally going to be my 2020 body of work before I chose to do skyscapes. The body of work is meant to bring attention to migratory birds of Canada. The body of work will be a huge endeavor as the aim is to work with one rescues/sanctuaries/similar organization from each province and territory creating a large body of work based on feathers and birds and then the body of work will travel to each province and territory with proceeds going to the organizations.
It originated with me picking up a Canada Goose feather from the park and then finding out about the migratory bird act which even picking up a feather from a park you can be fined as the government can't prove that is where you got it. There are many birds protected under acts like these and not many people seem to know about them.
This stippled image is based on a mallard wing as they have beautiful feathers with iridescent blue on them. That blue patch is called the speculum and it's found on the secondary wing feathers of both male and female mallards.
