The Raptor Trust is a comprehensive organization dedicated to the fulfillment of three primary missions:
To provide free care and assistance to injured, sick, or orphaned wild birds.
To educate people about wild birds, especially birds of prey.
To provide a humane example for others.
A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, The Raptor Trust is one of the premier wild bird rehabilitation centers in the United States. Located in central New Jersey, the Trust includes a hospital with state-of-the-art medical facilities, quality exterior housing for several hundred birds, and an education building. A stalwart advocate for birds of prey for three decades, it is now recognized as a national leader in the fields of raptor conservation and avian rehabilitation.
The Raptor Trust is open to the public seven days a week during reasonable daylight hours. Visitors are afforded a unique opportunity to view at close range the many hawks, eagles, falcons and owls that are permanent residents at the facility. There is no charge to visit, but a modest donation of $2.00 per person is encouraged.
