Adopt a Raptor
Every year dozens of raptors are rescued and rehabilitated by the Kenya Bird of Prey Trust but unfortunately not all birds can be released. In our view it is unethical to euthanise a flight-impaired raptor that is otherwise perfectly healthy and clearly shows the will to live. And even when not returning to the wild, these birds can play an important role in the conservation of raptors in Kenya. Some are great educational birds that instil awe and passion in visitors, others breed and raise chicks that can be returned to the wild.
You can now financially adopt one of our (semi-)resident raptors and cover the monthly cost for their care: food, housing, medical treatment and staff salaries. Kenya Bird of Prey Trust is not funded by the government and relies on financial support from people and organisations that believe in our work and in our mission to understand, protect and restore raptor populations in Kenya.
The adoption package includes
Personalised adoption certificate
Exclusive picture / movie of your adopted bird
Species fact sheet
An update on your adopted bird (every 6 months)
An invitation to a Meet & Greet with your adopted bird of prey (level of interaction depending on species and status of the bird)
Your name displayed at/near the enclosure of your adopted bird of prey (optional)
Adopt for yourself or a friend!
