DescriptionRescuing injured raptors can be challenging – no two situations are identical, and you never really know what you are going to find when you get on the scene. Being prepared for varying and changing situations is critical for a safe and successful rescue as is understanding basic raptor body language and behavior. This webinar will cover what information you should have before venturing out, what tools/equipment you should have on hand, how to create a plan based on an assessment of the overall situation and a raptor’s behavior, techniques for the capture, and tips for transport to a rehabilitation facility.
