Welcome to the Raptor Rehabilitation Project

Our Goals:

  •  To rehabilitate and release birds of prey back into the wild
  •  To educate the public about raptors and their importance in our environment
  •  To gain more information about raptors

The Raptor Rehabilitation Project is a service and education organization of the University of Missouri-College of Veterinary Medicine in Columbia, Missouri.

Veterinary students, community members and other University of Missouri students volunteer their time and effort in rehabilitating injured raptors and caring for resident birds. Volunteers also help raise public awareness by giving presentations throughout central Missouri. We bring education birds on these presentations to teach people about the ecological and cultural importance of birds of prey.
