Silent Wings Raptors Rehab and Education is a program of the Wildlife Institute of Eastern New York. The Institute is an IRS 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. The goal of our programs is to increase environmental awareness of children and adults alike by introducing them to some of the most exotic species of animals indigenous to their very own ecosystem...raptors or "birds of prey".
Birds of Prey
Raptors include owls, hawks, eagles, and falcons. All birds of prey have remarkable adaptations and skills for survival in the wild, and all are breathtakingly beautiful and fascinating to watch!
Admired for their strength, speed and astounding grace raptors are some of the most successful hunters in the animal kingdom. Their fierce independence and tenacity has been the source of admiration for countless generations.
Learn about them, their unique behaviors and the conservation issues that impact them including natural selection and human impact on species survival.
