“A raptor rehab well worth visiting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

I visited Radical raptors with a group of Anthropology students (and their professor) from the USA. We were all seriously impressed by the enthusiasm and dedication of the staff and founder/owners Dennis and Janet. What impresses me most about Radical raptors is the fact that they actually rehab and release their raptors where/when possible - many other raptor centers simply have shows and don't actually rehab and release the birds they have treated. The talk/show offered at Radical Raptors is super informative and educational, plus there is a strong conservation message communicated. Radical Raptors funds its continued rehab via their informative shows and they rely heavily on donations, please support this attraction.

“Owl and Vulture heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

Owls are awesome and so are the Vultures. To be able to be so close and have them sit on your hand, that is worth it, and the talk and demo is very worth while.
