Raptor Center of Tampa Bay

Raptor Center of Tampa Bay relocating to Riverview

Our mission is to build a wildlife rehabilitation facility in the Tampa Bay area with a focus on birds of prey where we can rescue, treat, and rehabilitate them with a goal of releasing them back into the wild. To provide teaching and guidance to the general public about conservation issues and increase public awareness of wildlife.

Who are we?

We are volunteers, a state and federally permitted rehabber, educators and conservation advocates. We are building a raptor rehabilitation facility to serve injured and sick birds of prey found in our area. 

The Raptor Center of Tampa Bay rescues, raises, rehabilitates and releases hundreds of wild native birds annually across central Florida.  In addition, we provide transportation and facilitate solutions for non-bird of prey species; deploy rapid response teams to treat and transport to the best facility for the species; host environmental;/nature education teaching events for the general public, including children’s programs; and work in conjunction with utility companies and other corporations to provide solutions for avian conflicts to reduce mortality.
