Beginning in 1989, Sardis Raptor Center was a rehabilitation for all species and began specializing in birds of prey in 1995. Today, the center specializes in the rehabilitation of endangered and threatened species including eagles, hawks, and owls. Most of the animals are released back into the wild once they fully heal, but some are kept in the center due to permanent injuries and used in educational programs. Their programs include facility tours, history lessons on different species of raptors, and encounters with the residents! The center is entirely run by volunteers and they are always looking for more. Learn more about the human interference with the environment through Sardis educational programs or as a volunteer at the center!
