Plans to protect air and water, wilderness and wildlife are in fact plans to protect (hu)man(s). – Secretary of the Interior Stewart Udall

What goes on during a day in the life of a raptor hospital?

Carolina Raptor Center was established in 1981 in the basement of the Biology Building at UNC-Charlotte by Dr. Dick Brown.  Over the last 40 years, the program has grown by leaps and bounds and has become the largest raptor rehabilitation facility in the country when measured by admissions. A Day in the Life of a Raptor Hospital takes you step-by-step through our rehabilitation process at Jim Arthur Raptor Medical Center. This hands-on exhibit gives you a closer look at CRC's passion for fixing birds and returning them to the wild. It chronicles a day in the life of this busy, efficient facility and features research by our partners at colleges and universities.
