See Video of Release!


On November 20, 2014 the RMRP admitted a 4th year Bald Eagle from the area of Weldona, CO. This male eagle had been hit by a Ford F350 pickup truck and had to be extracted from the grill of the truck by Todd Cozad a Division of Parks and Wildlife Manager.

The bird was transported to RMRP to begin the road to recovery. With care, compassion and our expertise in rehabilitation and a short 54 days later we returned this bird to the skies again. Here is a short video of that exciting moment. 

If you are a donor and supporter of the RMRP – you did this! If you are not yet a donor, you still can be and aid in our life saving work.  You made the difference in this young Bald Eagle’s life! Well done and THANK YOU!
