How We Work
Carolina Raptor Center embraces the principles of altruism above personal gain. This compassion extends to every living creature.
We believe that people are the most important part of our organization. We are grateful for the dedication and generous support provided by members of CRC’s family. We will treat everyone – visitors, guests, donors, clients, volunteers, staff and birds – with compassion, dignity and respect. In dealing with others we will be considerate and supportive in their needs.
Carolina Raptor Center invites all people to share our passion and enthusiasm for conserving the natural environment. Spreading the message of conservation will take many voices. To this end we will seek out individuals, learn from their education and experiences and embrace them as part of our growing family; acknowledging their contributions to our cause.
We will work with donors, volunteers and staff by understanding their needs, thoughts and goals. We will implement policies and procedures to adhere to the highest level of standards appropriate in reaching our vision of becoming the region’s premier environmental education center. We will be diligent in pursuing our mission, efficient in employing our skills and assets, and always seeking fun and exciting avenues to express our joy of our life works.
