RAPTOR, INC. is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated
to the preservation of birds of prey through rehabilitation,
education and conservation.
RAPTOR's goals are two-fold: the education of the public on
the importance of raptors and the preservation of their native
habitat; and the rehabilitation and return of injured raptors to
their natural environment. Because raptors, like all wild
animals, are protected under both state and Federal law.
RAPTOR, Inc. holds special permits to handle injured and
orphaned raptors until they can be released.
RAPTOR also has a limited number of captive birds that
can not be returned to the wild due to the extent of their
injuries. These birds are used in over 250 RAPTOR, Inc.
programs given annually to a variety of groups: school
classes, scout troops, church and senior citizen groups,
and conservation groups to educate the public about birds
of prey. A trained education specialist will come to your
location with live birds of prey to give an informative program
about these fascinating birds. Your group will learn about
Hawks, Owls, Falcons, Vultures and Eagles; where you might
find them in the Greater Cincinnati area and the importance
they play in our ecosystem.
