N. IL Raptor Rehab & Education

Northern Illinois Raptor Rehab & Education is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of injured, sick and orphaned birds of prey with the goal of returning healthy birds back to the wild, as well as educating the public about wildlife, conservation, ecology and habitats in the form of utilizing "live" birds of prey and other biological tools.

Our 2002 minivan is our personal vehicle and has been used for the organization since 2005 and currently has over 254,000 miles on it.  We are currently raising funds to help purchase a new van.  This will help us with not only our continuing education events, but also to help in the rescue of injured, sick or orphaned raptors who need our help.
