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.

With a passion for wildlife forged in the woods of Western Washington and equipped with a bachelor's degree in biology, Curtis Evans serves as the Peregrine Fund's Education Coordinator, where he enjoys guiding students of all ages as they learn and apply scientific principles through the lens of raptor conservation.
