At Teton Raptor Center in Jackson Hole, we share your commitment to involving the public in avian conservation, with a special focus in birds of prey. Our mission is to advance raptor conservation through education, research, and rehabilitation. We have a new opportunity for bird lovers throughout Wyoming to help rescue injured and orphaned eagles. Through a National Fish and Wildlife Foundation grant, we are coordinating a network of volunteer drivers, WGFD officers, pilots, veterinarians, and rehabbers to transport injured eagles in Wyoming to d rehabilitation centers.
We hope that members of the Laramie Audubon Society, or other avian aficionados in your area, will be interested in becoming Raptor Rescuers. Volunteering typically involves transporting injured birds in kennels from a WGFD office to a rehabilitation center. There is no minimum time commitment, and rescuers can choose to participate on a case-by-case basis. While the network is initially intended for Golden Eagles, there will be opportunities to help other injured raptors as well.
