Help Us Go the Distance to Help the Birds
We have a contract on a piece of land. The Raptor Center will soon move to Riverview!
Currently, there is no single facility that can accommodate all of the different species of birds of prey that we have in our area for rehabilitation and flight conditioning simultaneously. Historically, injured raptors in the Tampa Bay area have been rescued and transferred to a variety of rehabilitators around state. Our goal is to greatly reduce the time, cost and stress involved in rescue by establishing a facility to provide for the care of raptors in the Tampa Bay area. This requires funding to acquire land; install what we need to rehabilitate the 1000 – 1200 birds and animals we help each year.
Who are we?
We are volunteers, a state and federally permitted rehabber, educators and conservation advocates. Our goal is to build a raptor rehabilitation facility to serve injured and sick birds of prey found in our area. We will triage all birds that may be brought to our center and get them to the people who can best treat them. There is no rescue organization in the Tampa Bay area with the facility to help birds of prey get well and be reconditioned to get back into the wild properly without having to transport them very long distances for larger caging and flight barns.
The Raptor Center of Tampa Bay has helped over 600 birds and animals this year alone. Without your help we won’t be able to help the animals at the rate we have over the years. We’re busting at the seams and continually receive an increased number of birds. The birds need larger cages and we need your help to make this happen. For the Eagles, Owls, Kites, Falcons, Hawks, Osprey and Vultures that constantly need our help, please consider us as your charity of choice.
