Care for the Birds and the Environment

Volunteers don't necessarily have the time, but they have the heart, so they make time. – Unknown

A Rehabilitation Volunteer is trained to assist in our raptor medical facility.

  • Prepare diets 
  • Feed injured raptors
  • Observe injured raptor's behavior
  • Assist medical staff with treatments
  • Maintain bird medical records

The volunteers in our rehabilitation program are integral to helping put rehabilitated birds back into the wild. Because the birds at CRC are wild animals, we try to limit human and bird interactions. In order to decrease stress on the patients, rehab volunteers and staff handle the birds as little as possible.
