WA Conservation of Raptors

Scott_with_HobesAmanda and Stuart Payne of the WA Conservation of Raptors are volunteer wildlife carers specialising in Raptorial Birds of Prey: Eagles, Hawks, Falcons, Kites and Owls.

It’s interesting to note that any bird that preys upon another living thing for nourishment is classified as a ‘Bird of Prey’ (Penguins, Kookaburras, Pelicans, Ravens and Magpies, for example).

A ‘Raptorial Bird of Prey’, though, is easily identified by its sharp, hooked beak and powerful talons.

Amanda and Stuart have dedicated their time to this important work since 1993. Both work full time in completely non-raptor related jobs.

The WA Conservation of Raptors is not open to the public, but you can visit their website.
