Mission: To identify and address vital environmental issues by providing medical care to injured birds of prey and shorebirds, and through educational, research and conservation initiatives.
Programs: Avian conservation center operates a professional avian medical clinic for injured birds of prey and some shorebird species, offers on-site and outreach educational programs to students and adults, conducts relevant field and laboratory research studies,participates in and supports international conservation issues, is a first line responder for oiled birds in the event of a contaminant spill affecting native bird populations and their fragile breeding habitats along the south atlantic coast, and serves as a primary resource for creating ongoing awareness of the ecological impacts of a containment spill and proactive measures available to reduce the likelihood of such an event.
This is a marvelous organization that is dedicated to educating the public about birds and specifically birds of prey such as eagles, hawks, falcons, vultures, etc. In addition, they have a superb medical facility for rehabilitating birds that have been injured. They have just released their 7000 rehabilitated bird which happened to be a Bald Eagle. Our family have an annual membership and we also donate our time as transporters for injured birds. I urge anyone to visit and donate to this wonderful cause. You will NOT be disappointed. Therefore, we are donors, volunteers, photographers, and members of the general public.
