EDUCATION AND OUTREACH PROGRAMS
Raptors are groups of wild, carnivorous birds. They prey on other animals--sometimes as small as insects and sometimes as large as deer! Birds of prey have many identifying features and adaptations that fit their behavioral ecology. Binocular vision gives them depth perception during the hunt. Raptors' strong grasping feet with sharp talons allow them to swoop down, grab, and hold onto prey. Their hooked upper beaks tear and kill prey from the ground or trees.
Our education team introduces these birds and these concepts through adaptable and engaging educational programming for school groups, public programs, and media events. Donations for our education and outreach programs directly help the birds in our care, all the while creating an informed and empowered public base to further help protect wildlife and our local environments.
