HOW YOU CAN HELP BIRDS OF PREY

Everyone likes birds. What wild creature is more accessible to our eyes and ears, as close to us and everyone in the world, as universal as a bird?
— David Attenborough

There are many different ways you can support ORC, help protect your local wildlife and birds of prey.  You can make a donation, sponsor one of our non-releasable ambassadors, or book one of our Wildlife Education programs.

 We are 100% volunteer and donation based, so if you are not able to help financially, you can get involved and volunteer with us.

Another way to take action to help save birds of prey is to educate yourself! Read about the different species of birds of prey that live in your area. Find out about how humans are impacting the natural habitats of raptors and share your knowledge! 80% of the patients we receive are admitted because of human impact, so as we say in the rehabilitation community, "more education = less rehabilitation."
