Carolina Raptor Center ~ Huntersville, NC

 

Carolina Raptor Center

 

We are truly blessed to have Carolina Raptor Center in our backyard in Huntersville right outside of Charlotte, NC. This center is incredible with its dedication to environmental education and the conservation of birds of prey through public education, the rehabilitation of injured and orphaned raptors and research.

 

Their environmental education programs reach about 40,000 students each year.

Raptors are leading scientific indicators of a healthy environment.

and leave a message for their Rescue team.

Teresa.. I am glad that the Carolina Raptor Center has made so many people aware of these creatures.  Anything that is to help save the earth and it's creatures I enjoy reading about.  Thank you for sharing this blog.
