The birds that we see in the enclosures – are they going to be released?

No. The raptors in the enclosures on public view are what is termed ‘non-releaseable rehabilitation birds’ and are birds that have permanent injuries that prevent them from being able to survive in the wild. But, we can learn from their stories. Any injured, sick or orphaned bird of prey that comes in to Raptor Rescue is housed in the hospital which is off public display to ensure that that bird has the best chance of being returned to the wild.
