Raptor Ambassadors

With the Raptor Education Program
The birds used in our education program are wild birds that have been injured and we were unable to rehabilitate them to the point they could survive in the wild. The birds may change over the years and not all birds are used in every program. Birds, like people, need time off from their work!

Our newest Raptor Ambassador is Cricket, a Swainson's Hawk. Learn more about her.

In Memory of Dea

Dea was a pillar in our education programs, but more than that she was adored by all who knew her. She was a spirited bird and was an amazing ambassador for her species and all of wildlife in general. We are grateful for our time spent with her, and for all of the outreach she helped to provide to children, adults, and the greater community as a whole.
