Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. Do I need to fill out any paperwork? Yes, in advance of the session, we will email all pre-registered attendees several documents that will need to be completed before they can be considered for a volunteer placement. These documents include an application, liability waiver, social media agreement, and volunteer commitment agreement.
  2. How old do you have to be to volunteer at the Center? You must be 18 years or older to volunteer in the Avian Medical Clinic and 16 years or older to volunteer in all other departments. However, seasonal internships and service learning opportunities may be arranged for students under the age of 16.
  3. Do Volunteer Staff have to commit to a set schedule or number of hours? We require all on-campus volunteers to commit to one four-hour shift each week for a minimum of six months.
  4. What if I want to help, but cannot commit to a set schedule? Consider joining us as a Transport Volunteer. These volunteers work within their own geographic area and, after receiving instruction in the principals and techniques essential to the safe capture and transport of injured birds of prey and some shore birds, they are responsible for bringing injured birds to the Avian Medical Clinic from throughout the state. We host a couple of training sessions for new Transport Volunteers each year, so if you decide that your preference would be to assist the Center in this manner, please email us so we can notify you of the next session.
  5. Do you have to know about birds to volunteer at the Center? No, but you will learn a lot while working with us! All we require from you is a desire to make a difference through your committed volunteer service.
  6. Where can I contact the organizer with any questions? Call 843.971.7474 or send an email to info@thecenterforbirdsofprey.org

Organizer

Avian Conservation Center/Center for Birds of Prey

Founded out of an acute awareness for the need of an avian conservation center in South Carolina, the Charleston Raptor Center was formally incorporated as a 501(c)3 organization in September 1991. The Center’s name was changed to the South Carolina Center for Birds of Prey in 1995 to better reflect an expanded scope of programs and services.

With continued growth and reach, the Avian Conservation Center was established in 2004 as an “umbrella” organization to accommodate distinctive educational, medical, scientific and conservation disciplines within the organization. These operating divisions are: the Center for Birds of Prey; the Avian Medical Center; and the South Carolina Oil Spill Treatment Facility.
