Wind River Raptors is a 501(c)(3) non-profit focused on rescue, rehabilitation, and conservation of birds of prey and their habitats in the state of Wyoming. Wind River Raptors also strives to educate people of all ages about raptors and attempts to better the current methods of raptor rehabilitation.
Wind River Raptors is housed in a dedicated facility (known as the "Center") on a privately owned ranch in the Sinks Canyon ecosystem near Lander, Wyoming. The Center is equipped with an intensive care unit (ICU) that includes temperature- and humidity-controlled intensive care units that can supply oxygen to injured birds of prey.
Wind River Raptors is dependent upon volunteers and donations from the public to rescue, rehabilitate, feed, and house sick, injured, and juvenile birds of prey with the ultimate goal of releasing them into the wild.
Wind River Raptors was hand-on with 144 birds of prey in 2016 and 104 birds of prey in 2017.
2018 is starting out fast, with four Eagles (Golden and Bald) among the raptors being rescued in the first month of the year. We are particularly passionate about these amazing, very large raptors.
