Raptor Rehabilitation - The Raptor Ranch is the future home of the Northern Arizona Raptor Foundation.
The Northern Arizona Raptor Foundation is a Grand Canyon area non-profit 501-C3 corporation facility dedicated to the rehabilitation, and release to the wild of native eagles and other birds of prey that have been injured.
The Northern Arizona Raptor Foundation’s video monitoring station, shows the birds that are under their care along with the prognoses for release to the wild.
A number of these birds of prey are unsuitable for release, and are now available for public viewing.
No trip to the Grand Canyon’s Raptor Ranch would be complete without touring our raptor breeding facilities, incubation room, and nursery. We normally have baby birds at the Arizona Ranch from April thru October.
The domestic breeding of raptors was discovered in the 1960s by falconers who wanted the means of assuring access to a ready supply of birds for their sport.Raptors that were endangered were then bred by falconers and released into the wild to rebuild devastated populations. Due to these efforts, today only a couple of North American species require falconers’ assistance in release projects, but all other raptors being bred for falconry today are ready and waiting should the day come when the recovery of a raptor species requires assistance again. RR’s breeding pairs are descendants of these raptors and are ready to serve our conservation needs should the need arise again. Come to Arizona Raptor Ranch and observe these descendants of those historic making birds.
