ABOUT BIRDS OF PREY NORTHWEST
Throughout 2019, Birds of Prey Northwest in northern Idaho will celebrate its 26th year and the Year of the Bird! We promote stewardship and conservation of raptors through educational programs with live birds of prey, onsite at our BOPNW center and at schools, libraries, public events and professional conferences. The true STEM story of our most famous educational bird, Beauty, has been reported worldwide and is told in the new, award-winning children's book Beauty and the Beak: How Science, Technology, and a 3D-Printed Beak Rescued a Bald Eagle.
Our raptor center provides medical treatment and rehabilitation to sick, injured and orphaned birds of prey with the ultimate goal of returning them to the wild. We provide expert evaluation and care in coordination with other raptor centers and wildlife agencies, and train volunteer raptor caregivers. BOPNW is a nonprofit and depends on educational program fees, grants and partnerships, and graciously donated funds and items to care for many species of raptors.
