Donations to The Raptor Center help provide:

• Care and treatment of more than 700 sick and injured raptors each year
• Raptor education programs for thousands of children and adults nationwide
• Specialized training for veterinarians in raptor medicine, surgery, and rehabilitation
• Ongoing research and conservation efforts on behalf of avian species



Adopting an ambassador bird is a fun way to support the work of The Raptor Center. Adoption gifts help feed, house, and provide medical care for these education stars, who because of extensive injuries cannot be released back into the wild. Adoption gifts also allow TRC to do education programs for schools that could not otherwise afford these unique presentations and provide care to sick and injured raptors who will be released back into the wild. Adopt-A-Raptor today or learn about raptors in the program on our raptor adoptees page!
