The Raptor Institute is licensed by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and the US Fish and Wildlife Service to use non-releasable raptors for educational purposes. All of our birds have some form of disability that prevents them from being released back into the wild. At The Raptor Institute we make that disability a positive thing by using our birds as ambassadors to teach us about the importance of their species. To learn more about our educational ambassadors, click on the buttons to the left.
