I first became aware of this organization at a car meet Held at PNCC in Wilmington. I was amazed because I had never heard of them. I signed up to volunteer and had a wonderful first day experience with Scott ( very knowledgeable ) leader he was very helpful to get me going. I also worked with Paul who showed me how to gut mice for the morning feeding. Ed was working on the meds and Amanda also new helped cleaning cages. Everyone I worked with was very caring and I could tell how much they cared about the birds and the facility. I have some marketing ideas that I will bring at our next monthly meeting. I thing a large part of our fund raising success is letting people and groups and business's in the area that we exist and what we do. I will be there again next tues. I love it . Thanks Mike Catullo

We love working with the birds at the Cape Fear Raptor Center. I have been in volunteer services my entire teen and adult life and have never found anything more fun and fulfilling than this. It has been great to be able to see these creatures go from hanging on by a thread to being released back into the wild. We always are excited to see what new patients are there each week when we go to assist with treatments.

I took part in the 'raptor experience' and found it to be informative, enjoyable and very hands on. The staff were friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. What an incredible experience to actually have one of these magnificent birds on your fist (on a glove, of course).

My son and I discovered an owl trapped in fishing line. She was hanging from a tree with the line around her wing. She was totally exhausted. We rescued her from the tree and carried her to Cape Fear Raptor Center. These great folks repaired her wing and rehabilitated her for release. They kept us informed the whole time. When it was time for her to be released they drove her 50 miles back to my property and released her back to her home. These people are dedicated and what they do for raptors is just awesome!

I am a volunteer at Cape Fear Raptor center. I have been volunteering for I year. My 13 year old grandson is also a volunteer. I do the education programs where we go and share our birds with school groups etc. This nonprofit group is getting the information out on how important Raptors are to our ecological system. I did not know how important these birds are until I started working with them. We rescue and rehabilitate Raptors and educate the public about Birds Of Prey.

High level of professionalism and care of the raptors they receive, along with countless hours spent helping other organizations that need medical and surgical advise and/or care for non- raptorial bird species.

The Cape Fear Raptor Center is an amazing non profit. They help these birds in need that many others would let parish. People do not realize the importance of raptors to our ecosystem. The CFRC does their VERY best to save these birds, while also educating the public about their importance to our environment.
