Raptor Rescue Fund

The Alberta Society for Injured Birds of Prey rescues, rehabilitates and provides an emergency hotline resulting in the care of approximately over 150 raptors annually since 1987. 

We field emergency calls 24hours a day 7 days at week regarding injured birds of prey referred by 911 and report a poacher providing information on capture and transport of injured raptors.

Last year we traveled 31,742km across Alberta transporting injured birds of prey to our licensed rehabilitation shelter to receive medical attention and ultimately upon recovery be released back into the wild population.

In 2018, our shelter admitted 132 injured and or orphaned birds of prey that had been: hit by cars, suffering electrocutions, shot, found tangled in barbed wire, hit by wind turbines, hitting buildings and or trapped in buildings, diseased, and found starving. 

The cost to run the shelter annually is approximately $70, 000. The shelter employs one employee and most of the work is done by passionate volunteers. 

This activity is primarily funded through generous donations and casino funds. If you would like to find out more about the shelter you can check out our website , like us on facebook  or follow us on Instagram .

The money raised through this campaign will be used directly to help fund raptor transport & rehabilitation facilities at our shelter located just outside of Sherwood Park. During this tough economic time we understand how valuable every dollar is and we thankyou for your support!
