ADOPT A RAPTOR


Our Adopt-a-Raptor program is designed to give you the opportunity to sponsor your favorite Raptor Institute educational ambassador. Your support will be used to help pay for the costs of caring for our non-releasable raptors. These costs include food, housing, equipment, and medical care. All of our raptors have some form of debilitating handicap that keeps them from being able to survive in the wild. These wonderful birds came to us through a licensed rehabilitator who was faced with the hard task of finding a suitable home for these non-releasable birds or having them face euthanasia.   Your support helps give these wonderful raptors a second chance at life. At the Raptor Institute we have made the commitment to care for these birds and share them with the public for the duration of their lives. For some of our raptors that lifespan can be 30 years or more! We greatly appreciate your “adoption” of our raptors and we offer the following levels of sponsorship for each of our birds:

All adoptions come with the following benefits based on the amount of support you are willing to give.
