Volunteers are the backbone of RAPTOR Inc. and the organization could not function without them. Volunteers donate their time and talents to carry out our mission, to conserve birds of prey through rehabilitation, education, and research.
Volunteer activities may include transportation of injured raptors, cleaning of enclosures, maintenance of equipment, delivery of educational presentations, rehabilitation of raptors, maintenance of grounds, building perches or enclosures, and administrative activities. Our volunteers contribute in many unique ways!
If you would like to join our team, complete the following application and someone will be in touch with you. We currently have a large contingent of very reliable volunteers, so we are only interviewing individuals with specific needed skill sets.
