Eagles Heritage was established in 1987 out of a need to provide homes for permanently disabled birds of prey and owls which had been handed in and cared for by volunteers, but which, due to the nature of their injuries, were unable to make a recovery sufficient for their return to the wild. The fauna you see on display at Eagles Heritage are permanently disabled rehabilitation patients, captive bred birds and individuals which have been tranferred in from other facilities. Many more birds are rehabilitated and returned to the wild each year.
Away from the public view, seven acres at Eagles Heritage has been set aside for wildlife rehabilitation, including a hospital and specialised facilities designed to help sick, injured and orphaned raptors return to the wild. The centre provides training and support for volunteer wildlife rehabilitators who wish to work with these unique and amazing birds. Education opportunities are also available for animal health professionals and students seeking to expand their skills.
Eagles Heritage is proud to be associated with the Society for the Preservation of Raptors (Inc.), a not-for-profit association dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and conservation of birds of prey and owls.
