The ambassadors in the Raptor Education Program are the most important aspect of our program. Unable to be released back into the wild, providing them the best life and care possible is a priority for us. These animals give the public a chance to witness wildlife closer than what is normally possible.

Between food expenses, maintaining enclosures, and regular medical care the costs of caring for these amazing animals can be high. We are giving you the chance to directly support our Raptor Ambassadors and help us provide them with the best care possible!

By adopting an ambassador, you will help the Raptor Education Program offset the costs of caring the raptors housed on site. Realizing that not everyone can give in large amounts, we have developed options that allow everyone to support these amazing birds of prey. All adopts are active for one full year.

Adopting is easy and makes a wonderful gift for any wildlife lover.
