Help Protect Our Birds of Prey
Our work started in the 1980's with a group of dedicated volunteers. RROKI became incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1990. We are an all volunteer group dedicated to the rehabilitation of sick, injured and orphaned birds of prey. We rely solely on the dedication of volunteers and the generosity of our supporters.
We take in between 250-300 sick, injured and orphaned raptors every year, and release over 60% back into the wild. We count on the public to help get injured birds to us. The birds may have been hit by cars, flown into windows, or gotten caught in barbed wire fences. Although protected by state and federal laws, we still receive raptors who have been shot and poisoned. The saddest cases are those young birds who have been "saved" by people and are now imprinted - they think they are people. Those unfortunate imprints cannot be released back into the wild although there is nothing physically wrong with them. They have a mental problem and don't know how to act like birds.
If you find an injured raptor, please call us at 502-491-1939 and leave a message if we can't get to the phone right away.
