Found an injured Bird of prey?

When you find an injured bird of prey, your quick action may save its life.

If you have wildlife issues, you can call Florida Fish and Wildlife at 888-404-3922 or 352-732-1225.

If you are in Central Florida, please call us at the Center at 407-461-1056. Please note that our staff is only on site from 9:30 - 1:30 Monday-Friday and 9:30-4:30 on Saturdays. If we do not answer, please leave a message and we will return it as soon as possible. Because we are a small organization, we do not have the staffing to go out for rescues. If you can get the bird to us, we will be happy to do whatever we can to make it well, and return it to the wild. 

Help Our Cause

The Avian Reconditioning Center receives no Federal or State funding and is staffed entirely by dedicated volunteers. We are always in need of monetary donations and are greatly appreciated.

Pay with PayPal or a debit/credit card
