Raptor Rehabilitation Seminar

All classes will be held at Carolina Raptor Center, located inside Latta Plantation Nature Preserve. 

These seminars are designed for advanced level rehabilitators. The information presented is based on over 35 years of rehabilitation work at CRC and over 19,600+ patients admitted. It is an intensive learning experience that combines lectures, multimedia presentations and hands-on practice sessions taught by CRC staff with the assistance of trained volunteers.

Class sizes are limited to a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 16 participants in order to enhance opportunity for discussion. For hands on portions, the class will divide into small groups, allowing everyone to practice new techniques.

Attendees must have one year of experience in a wildlife rehabilitation facility/organization. 

Attendees will receive a link containing all handouts and PowerPoint presentations.
