Wild Raptor Sanctuary was founded as a way to help educate the public about these dynamic birds, and their importance to the ecosystem. This program emphasizes raptors: hawks, owls, eagles and falcons, kites and falcons. Every one of the resident birds are not releasable to the wild and are in permanent care. They have taken up the mantle of feathered ambassadors and are dedicated to providing information about their wild relatives, habitat concerns, and issues facing raptors today. These powerful and graceful birds, each with their own story, make an enormous impact, providing a true connection and appreciation for all wildlife and the habitat we share. Each of the live demonstrations provides an unparalleled experience designed to engage audiences of all ages. Learn More about the program and meet a few birds.
