Why We Help
SRC provides a safe place for sick and injured raptors to receive care. Combined with our research efforts, our rehabilitation work helps us understand emerging health concerns and issues for raptor populations. As predators at the top of the food chain, raptors provide a wealth of information about the ecosystems they exist in. Each patient SRC admits increases our understanding of the impact of human activity on our local environment.
How We Help
SRC’s goal is to foster an increased appreciation for nature and inspire conservation action through our public education programs. We provide presentations for area schools, camps, libraries, clubs, churches, and community organizations. SRC engages in and collaborates with other like-minded organizations on research and conservation projects to promote the improved welfare of birds in our local environment. SRC research efforts improve our rehabilitation and education abilities.
