Providing safe and effective housing for raptors throughout their rehabilitation can be a management challenge. While you can anticipate species-specific behaviors, individuals also have special needs based on the reason for their admission, their anxiety about confined spaces, and their changing energy levels as the rehabilitation process progresses. This course teaches you about the housing options used to address these issues and offers guidelines for management steps you can take to help prevent self-inflicted injuries in raptor patients.
