Kestral Skyhawk, education director at Sarvey Wildlife Care Center, works with this golden eagle to help educate the public about native wildlife. Due to an illness the eagle obtained from eating a sick bird, her beak needs manicuring and she can no longer survive on her own in the wild. After Sarvey obtained the necessary permit, this golden eagle became an education bird. Besides Kestral and her team of wildlife rehabiltators, program participants could witness the personalities and beauty of a Barn Owl, Peregrine Falcon, Red-tailed Hawk, and Bald Eagle.
Partcipants also learned about wildlife etiquette and the three Ls of outdoor activities — LOOK to see what’s happening, LEARN about it, LEAVE it for the wildlife or the next person to see. Sarvey Wildifle Care Center is a nonprofit wildlife center that strives to save the lives of sick, orphaned, injured, displaced, and debilitated wildlife with the goal to successfully return them to native habitat.
