Episode #2712 -
Rehabbing Raptors
While raptors do not have any natural predators, they nonetheless face a shrinking habitat, causing them problems. Only 20% of raptors make it to adulthood, primarily because of starvation. Others are injured by vehicles, flying into glass, etc. So the Illinois Raptor Center in Decatur provides rehabilitation for eagles, hawks, falcons, owls and other raptors that are injured or otherwise incapacitated, with the intent, where possible, to return the birds to the wild. This At Issue program discusses the rehabilitation services and the educational programs offered at the Illinois Raptor Center, shows a live broad-tailed hawk, and describes the features of raptors, including talons, wings and beaks.
