"Our mission: To inspire the protection and appreciation of raptors and the spaces where they live through excellence in rehabilitation, education and research."

Since 1987, the Rocky Mountain Raptor Program (RMRP) has served the northern Colorado community through the rescue of injured birds of prey and environmental communication.

Our community-based team of raptor rehabilitation experts, excellent veterinarians, and specially trained volunteers provide compassionate and high-quality raptor rehabilitation to every wounded warrior in need. The Rocky Mountain Raptor Program also plays a vital role in community education and outreach, providing hands-on learning about raptor species and the environment.

The work we do represents a collaborative community effort focused on the humane treatment of raptor species, bringing together a diverse public to nurture, and protect the health and environment of birds of prey.

At a glance:

  1. The RMRP now admits around 300 raptors each year.
  2. Eight staff members and nearly 140 active volunteers provide critical rehabilitative care.
  3. Volunteers contribute more than 44,000 hours per year, averaging more than 120 hours each day, an amount equal to 22 employees.
  4. More than 80% of treatable birds are released.
