This is a self funded project driven by passion for birds of prey. Humans have, for as long as time can tell had an affinity with birds of prey. Captured by their beauty, grace, nobility and intelligence.
Being a primary predator, birds of prey are a key indicator to environmental impacts and thus habitat health.
However, due to their free, wild and often secretive manner, the ability to travel great distances, their plight is often overlooked.
With many species in decline, specially protected or critically endangered. Through habitat loss, poisoning from pesticides and insecticides and many other human impacts.
The rehabilitation project takes in sick / injured / orphaned raptors. They are treated, nursed or raised to health. Depending on severity of the disabling factor the bird of prey can be with us from hours to years.
A visit to the centre will give you an insight into the rehabilitation process. You will get to see all the resident raptors ( condition depending ). The training process for eventual hack back. The breeding of quail for a food source.
Dependent on season, raptor inhabitants and their state of rehabilitation it is also possible to watch the raptors fly.
