Ensuring the health of raptors and the world we share through teaching, research and service. Each bird admitted to The Raptor Center tells us something about the effects of habitat loss, declining water quality, disease prevalence, and toxins in our environment.
In 2016 TRC provided care for a record breaking 1,058 birds! We are on track to have another very busy year in 2017! More than 65% of our operating budget comes from donations from people just like you!
In addition to helping the birds we all love, your support helps:
- Educate conservation-minded veterinarians and veterinary students.
- Underwrite the cost of our unique programs teaching the next generation the importance of environmental stewardship.
- Research that helps us understand how changes in the natural world affect raptors and ultimately all living things including humans.
The first $53,000 in gifts to The Raptor Center on Give to the Max Day will be matched by three loyal donor families; the Hollstadt family, the WM Foundation and the Sarah J. Andersen Fund of the Hugh J. Andresen Foundation.
