Adopt a Raptor

At the top of the food chain, raptors serve as critical indicators of the overall health of our environment. That’s why they are so vital to all of our natural science education programs.

Our resident raptors were injured or imprinted on humans before coming to live with us. We hold permits for the possession and exhibition of live birds and artifacts from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

By supporting the Raptor Program or by adopting your favorite raptor, you help provide:

  • Food
  • Life Enrichment
  • Medical Care
  • Training
  • Underwriting of critical ecosystem education

To meet each of our feathered friends up close and personal visit our Raptor Program page. To adopt one of our raptors or donate to the Raptor Program please visit our How to Donate page.
