Eagle release honours late arborist

Vancouver arborist Jody Taylor died on the job in March. To honour his long-time service to the rehabilitation of local eagles,  Taylor’s 10-year-old daughter, Tristen, helped release two eagles — including one that fell from the platform Taylor built last spring — back into the wild.

Tristen and her mother, Elizabeth Taylor, were joined by dozens of people on the banks of the Harrison River for the special release ceremony.

The injured eaglet was turned over to Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society in Delta, B.C last spring.

“Something as simple as an eagle release to us could mean the world to a kid, which is what we’re about,” Rob Hope, the raptor care manager, said.
