OWLS was established in 1988 in response to a need for a facility where all species of injured, sick, and orphaned native wild animals could be cared for in a compassionate and professional manner. An OWLS educational program emphasizes local wildlife, ecology, adaptations for survival, human interaction, and local/national environmental issues effecting wildlife. The program includes a slide presentation addressing these issues, including some of OWLS’ past patients and their histories, hands-on activities with touch displays, and an introduction to one or more resident animals. Call the shelter at (252) 240-1200 to find rates for the tour. OWLS is located at 100 Wildlife Way, Newport, NC 28570.View Larger Map
