Mission: The RMRP inspires the protection and appreciation of raptors and the spaces where they live through excellence in rehabilitation, education and research.
Results: Founded in 1979 as a vet student club, the Rocky Mountain Raptor Program has grown and evolved over the years. Treating maybe 5 birds a year in the early years we now see about 300 a year. During our time we have treated well over 6000 raptors. We have educated thousands of people to respect and appreciate raptors in our world.
Target demographics: injured raptors and the community
Direct beneficiaries per year: Nearly 300 injured raptors from Northern Colorado & Southern Wyoming
Geographic areas served: Northern Colorado and Southern Wyoming
Programs: rescue, rehabilitation, release, education and research
I found this raptor organization over 25 years ago. I fell in love with seeing the birds at the festivals they attend. Without such amazing opportunities to see birds up close and in person, few people would have a true understanding of the majesty of these birds. The education provided allows all of us to learn about the challenges each of these species face in our challenging world.
This is a wonderful organization. All the staff and many volunteers are dedicated to the saving of raptors. They rehabilitate birds for release and provide excellent education through their outreach programs. We are lucky to have this organization in our community.
