Carolina Raptor Center: Conserve. Educate. Inspire.

Carolina Raptor Center is dedicated to environmental stewardship and the conservation of birds of prey through education, research, and the rehabilitation of injured and orphaned raptors. As a charitable 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, CRC relies on public financial support to fulfill our mission. Supporters can release a raptor, adopt a bird, make a charitable donation, purchase a membership or sponsor a capital improvement project. CRC’s environmental education programs reach approximately 40,000 students each year. Our Raptor Trail hosts more than 35,000 visitors a year. Click on this link to view our FY 2011 Annual Report.

Mission

Carolina Raptor Center is dedicated to environmental stewardship and the conservation of birds of prey, through education, research, and the rehabilitation of injured and orphan raptors.

Vision Preamble

Carolina Raptor Center is focused on broadening our constituent and stakeholder base, while expanding the impact of our programs. Currently we meet our mission by educating tens of thousands of school children every year and participating in local and regional events to share environmental lessons and encourage stewardship. We advise other raptor centers, falconers, and zoos in the care and rehabilitation of raptors, and the training of raptors used in education programs and participate and present in national conferences every year. Furthermore, we collaborate in research projects conducted at universities and other raptor centers and initiate research that advances our knowledge of raptor biology and treatment, and the environmental health of our world in general.

Vision Statement

  • To promote environmental stewardship through education about our environment, the role raptors play in our ecosystem, and sustainable habitats that support animals and humans alike; and to advance our education programs in a wide geographic area using modern technological tools.
  • To build on CRC’s reputation as a leading rehabilitation center to become recognized as a center of excellence for our care of, and success at releasing, injured and orphaned raptors back into the wild and for developing state-of-the-art avian medicine techniques.
  • To leverage a growing database on raptors, and growing networks in the scientific community, into research that advances our knowledge of raptor biology, behavior and treatment, as well as the environmental health of our world in general.
  • To build on CRC’s program, fiduciary and governance practices to become broadly recognized as a center of excellence in all of our organizational operations.
