Our Eagle Center, located right here in Ketchikan, is home to twelve permanently disabled birds, among them are three bald eagles, a golden eagle, several hawks, falcons, and owls. These birds serve as ambassadors for their wild cousins in our public education programs and it is our hope to teach both residents and visitors more about Southeast Alaska and the amazing wildlife that lives here. The staff at the Eagle Center is extremely passionate about providing conservation education to our community while rescuing, caring for, and rehabilitating any injured, sick, or orphaned wild birds found throughout Southeast Alaska.
To continue to provide for these birds, and our community, we would love your support. It is costly to provide our birds with the quality care they require, and as a non-profit organization we rely upon the generous support of our community to continue our efforts. Our birds feast on donations of meat and fish daily. Remember us when you are cleaning out your refrigerators or freezers. Your tax deductible donations of any meat and fish are appreciated. Blackbill, our raven, also enjoys cereals, bread, fruits, and veggies, too!
Our staff, volunteers, and especially our birds thank you for your kind contributions. If you would like to donate any item such as meat or fish to our eagles and other birds just give me a call at (907) 228 - 5534 and I'll can even set up a day & time for you and your friends or family to come by for a special behind the scenes tour!
