BENEFITING: Raptor Institute

THE STORY:

The Raptor Institute has been serving the San Diego community for the past five years and we have loved every minute of it. Throughout that time we have provided hundreds of educational programs and exposed thousands of children, teenagers, and adults to our local raptor species. Our programming has finally grown to the point where we are now ready to expand our avian family and introduce our audience to even more of San Diego’s local raptor species. In order to accomplish this goal we need your help!

We have created a plan to expand and enhance our current facilities to be able to accommodate and house more raptors. This expansion plan includes the build out of seven new enclosures, the remodeling of our current facilities and a large enclosed weathering area where the birds can get exercise and spend more time “outdoors”. Thanks to a generous grant from the NorCross Wildlife Foundation and the wonderful support from La Mesa Lumber, we are almost ready to execute our big plan! In order for us to be able to break ground and begin construction we need the help of our local community to raise the remaining funds needed and to literally Raise the Roof on this project!

110% Raised of $5,000 Goal

Fundraise for this Campaign

What your contribution will go toward:


1. Mew Expansion: The materials needed to build these new living quarters. This includes lumber, roofing, hardware and other materials. All labor is being generously donated by Raptor Institute volunteers and board members along with help from local contractors. We look forward to sharing the building process with you so you can literally see your donations at work!

2. The Aviary: We are so excited to build this enclosed weathering area so all of our raptors can get plenty of exercise and enjoy some time out in the San Diego sunshine. This will not only keep our birds healthy and in shape but will significantly increase their second lease on life with us. The materials we need to accomplish the aviary include lumber, netting and hardware.

3. Perching Materials: No bird house is complete without perches, and we are prepared to make these perches fun! Birds love to sit and relax by the window, but they also love to move around and active raptors are happy raptors! These materials will include lumber, ropes, perching mats and hardware.

4. Organic Materials: No aviary would be complete without natural materials for the raptors to hang out on, but also to keep this space as close to nature as possible. This will include small trees, shrubs, and other natural perching materials.
