In 1998, a fledgling eagle survived a fall from its nest on a pickle factory property thanks to the swift action of Gedney staff and The Raptor Center. Reunited with its parents, this eagle later became a vital contributor to its species' recovery.
Volunteers at The Raptor Center (TRC) play an integral part in nearly every step of the raptor rehabilitation process, and baby season is no exception. While all TRC volunteers receive thorough training on best practices for working with raptors, “baby volunteers” receive even more extensive coaching to learn how to assess different situations and safely interact with youngsters.
In the midst of this severe disease outbreak, TRC staff came up with creative solutions to continue to provide care for juvenile raptors while preventing transmission of HPAI between patients or to nests.
When the Partners for Wildlife (P4W) team engages with its network of wildlife rehabilitators and centers, it’s striking how significant the role of raptors— particularly young raptors—is in the sector.
Wildlife rehabilitators across the world are fortunate to work with many incredible species. As advocates for these animals, their utmost goal is to keep patients wild and return them back to nature.
What’s in a number? TRC admits its 30,000th patient, marks a milestone in decades of data-driven care
On Jan. 1, 1974, a northern goshawk suffering from a wing injury after being shot was admitted as the first official patient to The Raptor Center’s (TRC) veterinary clinic.
