The California Raptor Center

The California Raptor Center, affiliated with the University of California-Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, is committed to preserving and perpetuating the health of all raptor species, with special emphasis on those native to California and the West. We accomplish this goal through our Mission:

Education
We offer educational programs to K-12 and university students, Wildlife Agencies, and California communities, teaching the biology of raptors, the importance of these predators in the ecosystem, the difficulties they face as their natural habitats shrink, and ways we can help raptors - and by extension, all wildlife species - to thrive.

Raptor Health Care and Rehabilitation
We provide an important service to the public and to state and federal agencies, accepting all injured, ill, and orphaned birds of prey they bring us. We offer these birds the finest available medical care and rehabilitation.

Research
Multidisciplinary research teams from the university design and carry out studies on all aspects of the health of both captive and free-living raptors.
