  • Free distance learning with Raptor Lab

    With schools closed and students and families staying home, TRC has a free online learning tool called Raptor Lab which is great for youth (and adults). It puts learners in the shoes of researchers and vets, walking them through clinic cases based on real life. Resources to learn more and a link to Raptor Lab can be found here.


Here at The Raptor Center we are proud of our mission to ensure the health of raptors and the world we share.
