Review for Raptor Resource Project, Decorah, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Raptor Resource Project is a bright ray of light in an otherwise dark endangered species world. Through their dedicated efforts, countless individuals and classrooms have become educated with regard to the beauty and endangerment of the raptor population. I have watched their live-stream of two eagle nests in Iowa for the past seven years as well as become a monthly donor to the organization. Our society is better off with RRP here and generations yet to be born will thank them for helping to avoid the extinction of this marvelous species.

Rating: 5 stars  

I first became acquainted with SoAR when one of the eagles in a nest I was watching (via live stream) was injured and entered SOAR for rehab. The people there were just amazing. Loving, beyond competent, compassionate, and dedicated to educating the public about our avian companions. The care given to each patient is thorough and costly. They depend upon donations and I am proud of being a monthly donor. This is one organization that is making America great every day of the year!

Rating: 5 stars  

I first met the wonderful people from SOAR when a fledgling from the nest I was watching online (Decorah) was injured. The loving and incredibly competent care freely given at SOAR was just a joy to behold. I immediately became a monthly donor since I know their operational budget is strained by the sheer number of birds they rehabilitate and (hopefully) are able to release back to the wild. Through following them, I have learned so much about how we humans can decrease obstacles to eagle survival such as getting the lead out of ammunition and retrofitting electric lines. SOAR has an educational component as well as a rehab one. Public presentations serve to educate the next generation on the importance of ensuring the survival of these birds. Well done SOAR, well done!!!

I discovered the Raptor Resource Project (RRP) in 2013 through their live streaming of the Decorah eagle nest and the incredible gentle lessons taught regarding the way of the eagle. I feel like I have had a new world open for me with regard to the patience and perseverance of both the eagles and the incredible folks from RRP. RRP teaches us viewers so much and in so many ways. Some is through the remarkable blogs written on the RRP research but most are though the incredible community guided by RRP that has arisen as we have shared both the miracles and sorrows of life as an eagle in the modern world. When I first experienced the late Bob Anderson, I immediately realized that he was the real deal. That his dedication and love for the raptors was a total rarity in our society. RRP contributes an incredible source of positive energy to our weary planet in each of its activities. There aren't too many people or organizations that I would say this about. A deep bow of appreciation to all the folks carrying on Bob's legacy and vision. I am proud to be a small part of this community and to make a monthly donation to its activities.

Review for Saving Our Avian Resources S O A R, Dedham, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have witnessed the work of SOAR for the past three years through my watching of the Decorah Nest (live streamed by Raptor Resource Project - RRP) and the amazing rehab work they did with one of the injured eagles (D 20 aka Decorah) who could not be released. This eagle has been made an Education Ambassador by SOAR and we have been privy to the loving and expert training given to Decorah by the SOAR Director and staff. In this process, I have seen the large number of injured birds that have been successfully treated and released back into the wild. Obviously, these birds do not have insurance and there are no responsible parties to pick up the costs of medicine and food. Most notable is the dedication of this group to being available to all injured birds brought to them. They contribute a much needed positive energy to a society that is sorely in need of folks who support life. I am a proud monthly donor to SOAR and only wish that amount could be more.
