The Future of the Raptor Center
The Middle Tennessee Raptor Center is a non-profit organization looking to build a wildlife rehabilitation facility in the Coffee/Franklin/Moore County area of southern middle Tennessee for birds of prey. This facility will serve as the hub for injured raptor rescue, treatment, and rehabilitation, all with the goal of releasing them back into the wild. Until that wonderful day, we will continue to provide guidance to the general public about conservation issues concerning raptors and educational opportunities with our ambassador birds.
Land: It's Expensive and Hard to Find
However, we know the perfect place is out there!
We are hopeful for a piece of donated and buildable land between 3-8 acres (or larger) as the site for our state-of-the-art rehabilitation center. While we are grateful for all our wonderful donors and the strong philanthropic hearts behind them, land for wildlife rehabilitation and a center has a specific quality required for it. If you would like to speak with us about this prospect, please contact us through our email or message us through the website to discuss.
The Rehabilitation and Visitor Center
Change for the Better
We currently operate from our home, and we're fortunate to be able to have the room required to do this wonderful work. However, with seeing over 130 avian patients annually, and our growing roster of raptor education ambassadors, it won't be long until we're going to need more space.
The future Middle Tennessee Raptor Center will have an interactive visitor center where people can come and have up-close and personal experiences with our education ambassadors and learn everything there is to know about birds of prey. This facility will be known for excellent quality of care for injured birds, strong and diverse local partnerships, and superior educational wildlife programming. We will be a direct resource throughout the State of Tennessee and beyond, developing relationships that will extend throughout the international raptor community.
