Dangers to Raptors

Threats to Raptors

Rat Poison

Many raptors come into our care after ingesting rats or mice who have been poisoned. Poisons do affect more than their intended targets.

Lead Poison

Eagles and Turkey Vultures are the most affected by lead shot. A piece of lead the size of a grain of rice is enough to kill a full sized eagle in 48-72 hours.

Habitat Loss

Habitat loss is a big concern to the many species of raptors we share the land with, but there are ways you can help.
