My wife and I visited the Carolina Raptor Center for the first time this year and were amazed. We learned so much about the different birds and enjoyed hearing about each bird's rehabilitation. The shows were very informative too. We WILL be back!
I am a proud volunteer at Carolina Raptor Center. When I get a call about an injured bird, I am just like a horse waiting to be hooked up to the firetruck. My car is always ready with the supplies I will need. Every rescue is different. I may be in mud, water, or under someone's porch in my efforts to rescue the Owl/Hawk/Vulture/and more. It's a wonderful experience to know that someone will be in the CRC Hospital waiting for me to bring in my patient. I love my volunteer work and all the experienced people who work so hard to save these birds!!! Judy Helms
Carolina Raptor Center is outstanding in their hard work to stabilize, medically or surgically treat, and rehabilitate injured birds of different species. Equally important is their work in teaching staff, visitors, and especially children of all ages how important it is to help keep Nature in her delicate balance so future generations can enjoy its beauty.
Not only does Carolina Raptor Center provide a forest of beautiful birds of prey to see, it also provides exciting and informative educational programs for bird lovers of all ages. For those who are especially interested in their ultimate behind-the-scenes mission of rehabilitating injured birds for return to the wild, there are additional tours of the rehabilitation center, a photo blog of the feathery rehab patients, and myriad opportunities to volunteer. Becoming a member of the Carolina Raptor Center offers free admission to the center for a year, discounts in the gift shop and more, all while helping the Center prove to its grant-funding organizations how many people heartily support its mission.
What a fantastic charity! The work they do with raptors is phenomenal and the staff is top-notch. Their facility is well-maintained. The animals are obviously well cared-for. If you have an interest in the Raptor Center's daily treatment and rehabilitation efforts it's all available via the RaptorMed online journal. Highly recommended!
