About the World Center for Birds of Prey
The World Center for Birds of Prey is the public outreach and educational center of The Peregrine Fund, an international non-profit conservation organization. The headquarters in Boise, Idaho serves as a hub of scientific research and the implementation of roughly 30 global conservation programs. Guests of the World Center for Birds of Prey engage with avian ambassadors from around the world in a nose-to-beak experience as they learn how they can save raptors worldwide.
About the class
Celebrate the conservation movement that created the first Earth Day and saved the Peregrine Falcon from extinction. We'll meet raptors from around the world and learn how to use science to study and save endangered species.
Meet your instructors, Curtis and Tate.
