Australian Raptor Care and Conservation Inc. (ABN 76 955 891 065)

a non-government, not-for-profit, totally volunteer community-based organisation based in the Southern Highlands of NSW

Formed by a group of individuals with relevant experience, and an over riding passion, to have a positive impact on raptor rehabilitation techniques utilised in Australia.

The ultimate aim is to share knowledge of best husbandry practice and maximise survival rates post release.

As individuals we have already made good progress towards our goals, but individuals alone have limited reach and power. As a group now we magnify our strengths, and we can and will make a difference.

There are big but exciting challenges ahead, and with more support including yours,  the possibility of a better outcome for the raptors that come into care all over Australia every day, becomes more achievable with every dollar we receive.

Whether you are an existing raptor carer, a vet wanting to expand or share you knowledge of specialist raptor techniques, a scientist, a school or just someone who loves and appreciates our magnificent athletes of the skies, we invite you to be a supporter.
