Mission: The Peregrine Fund works globally to conserve biological diversity and enhance environmental health by working with birds. This is accomplished by restoring species in jeopardy, conserving habitat, educating students, training conservationists, providing factual information to the public, and accomplishing scientific investigations. We have assisted on conservation projects in more than 40 countries. The organization employs the inter-disciplinary principles of conservation biology. We strongly believe in cooperative efforts involving individuals, organizations, corporations, and government, a belief that has been the cornerstone of the program to restore the Peregrine Falcon. We are a results-oriented organization that works locally, nationally, and internationally. Preserving visible, charismatic, far-ranging species results in many benefits. By focusing on birds and their ecological requirements, and providing sufficient protection to sustain viable populations, we are using birds to provide an umbrella of protection for the diversity of life and the entire ecosystem associated with them.

For myself it took one visit to the World Center for Birds of Prey to realize I had to be a part of this wonderful organization in some way, so I volunteer as a tour guide at the center. For visitors who wish an entertaining and educational experience, this facility is first class. During your visit you will learn cool facts about birds of prey, you will learn about the sport of falconry and the Peregrine Fund's mission. Upon arrival most visitors do not realize we have over 200 birds of prey at the Center. Many do not know that one of the Peregrine Fund's important missions is the propagation of endangered birds of prey for release to the wild. Fun and educational experiences await visitors of all ages from children making birds of prey masks to seniors who grab the "Kodak Moment" to get photos of the grand kids dressed up like birds of prey. You will likely leave with a greater appreciation for these awesome raptors. I have heard more than one visitor walk away saying they had no idea this place had so much to offer. For us tour guides, that is our reward. Steve Lewis

After my first visit to the Birds of Prey I was passionate about being a part of this humble organization. I now volunteer on site and am excited to work with other people who like to serve their community. The people and the community of birds makes this a worthwhile investment of time and funds. A way to learn and contribute to ensuring that these very special birds survive and infiltrate our world with their unique style and beauty. I can't wait to have more revealed on a day to day basis as focus increases on this very special interest.

Moved to Boise in Jan 2001. Family hadn't arrived so first weekend wandered around finding The Peregrine Fund World Center for Birds of Prey. I spent three and a half hours here that day and knew when I retired I'd volunteer to work at Birds of Prey. Four years later I began my volunteer position. As someone who has visited all 50 states and about 30 countries, I can say without reservation The Interpretive Center and Peregrine Fund are at the top of my best experiences. It is a place where every week I've volunteered, I've learned something new. The greatest experience of course is to show a live raptor to visitors, however every moment is enjoyable. We meet some of the most fascinating people in the world (literally). True satisfaction is knowing each month my five year old grandson is going to ask, "Papa, can we go up to Birds of Prey?"
