What We Do
Carolina Raptor Center ignites imaginations and inspires engagement in the natural world through the exploration and rehabilitation of birds of prey. Today, the 3/4 mile Raptor Trail is an educational visitor attraction that displays over 30 different species of raptors in Latta Nature Preserve. The capital campaign for the new Quest facility will soon be underway and will include a 200-seat amphitheater, 40 aviaries housing one of the largest collections of birds of prey in the country. Our current Raptor Rescue facility treats over 900 raptors a year, releasing 60% of the birds that live for the first 24 hours back into the wild. Every year, more than 67,000 people visit us or participate in our education programs, and over half a million engage with us through social media.
