Statewide Raptor Transport Network

A statewide Raptor Transport Network of trained volunteers intervenes in emergency situations such as assisting in raptor rescue including rescuing raptors trapped in large buildings or warehouses, transporting injured raptors to AWC for treatment or to and from AWC & Vet Clinics, or assisting in reuniting nestlings & fledglings with parents.
