Cascases Raptor Center

by Tom June. 16, 2011 2432 views

The Cascades Raptor Center is a nature center and wildlife hospital in Eugene, Oregon, that specializes in raptor rehabilitation.

Injured, sick, or orphaned birds are brought to us by members of the public, police officers or other government staff, or referred by other wildlife rehabilitators. We have a responsibility, both to the birds and the people who bring them in, to provide the best care possible - everyone associated with CRC takes seriously this important responsibility. As a result of the trust we have established we see and treat between 150 and 200 sick, injured and orphaned birds each year.

Why do these birds need our help?
The vast majority have been the losers in some confrontation with humans or our way of life: these birds are in collisions with vehicles; hit windows or come down chimneys; hit power lines; tangle in fishing line, or barbed wire, electric, or other fencing; are poisoned by rodenticides or pesticides; are shot; are caught in leg hold traps; babies have their nest sites destroyed through construction, landscaping, or logging; for lack of natural habitat, their parents have chosen dangerous nest sites; or young birds are simply picked up when they shouldn't be.
