Introducing the Zlaty Camp Scolarship Fund
The Zlaty Fund was created by Ruth Pollow, a volunteer at Carolina Raptor Center, in honor of the Golden Eagle Zlaty who passed away in December 2018. Zlaty was a gentle Golden Eagle and a true ambassador for his species. He arrived at Carolina Raptor Center in 1985 and traveled with staff to inspire and teach students about raptors. Over the years he traveled to schools, bird conferences, events, and even took part in the centers summer bird show. He was a special eagle that left an impact on staff, volunteers and those who had the fortunate chance to meet him. He touched the hearts of many and inspired Ruth to create this scholarship fund to continue to keep his spirit alive by helping students in the community.
