Whenever possible, orphaned or injured birds are rehabilitated and released into the wild where they belong. Those birds determined as non-releasable are evaluated for their suitability to be used for educational purposes as part of a permanent display or live presentations - utilizing the trained birds.

A wildlife rehabilitator must have hundreds of hours of training and pass a written test (among other requirements) before they can receive their state and federal permits to operate legally. Rehabilitators receive no financial support from either the federal or state government for their work. Each year a rehabilitator must submit ongoing paperwork and reports providing information on each bird that has passed through their facility. The government has these regulations because of the large black-market trade in native wildlife parts. They've had to make obtaining and maintaining permits tough enough so only people who really care about wildlife will make the effort to acquire and maintain their permits.

We are currently looking for volunteers to help with our rehabilitation process. If you would like more information about how you can help, call us at (602) 404-8743 or email Raptors, Inc.
