Birds of Prey Rescue and Rehabilitation Program
Garden Route Birds of Prey Rehab Centre has an active rescue and rehabilitation focus of all raptors in the Garden Route area. We are on call 24/7 to rescue birds or receive birds that have been kept as Pets.
When a bird or animal is admitted, it is first thoroughly examined to assess its overall condition. Severely injured or poisoned birds are immediately referred to one of our recognized veterinarians. Less severe cases are initially quarantined and treated, then housed and trained for release on-site.
To rehabilitate a Bird of Prey is costly and we need help in the form of donations. Expenses can include:
- veterinary consultations,
- surgical procedures,
- laboratory tests,
- housing, perches, jesses and hoods,
- specialized diet
- and the sometimes lengthy training program some bird need to be released back into the wild.
Garden Route Birds of Prey has an exhibition side to their centre where the public is invited to take part in a guided tour, you will be able to see some of their non-releasable birds.
If you are one of those more adventurous people who are interested to learn more about these magnificent bird you can talk to one of the falconers on how you can become part of this amazing world.
