Birds of Prey & Adaptions for Flight and Feathers
Despite the crucial role that birds of prey play in the natural order, they have long been the subjects of persecution and inaccurate portrayal. Unfortunately, most injuries to birds of prey involve some human interference. Best known for their symbolism, beauty and compelling nature, birds of prey serve as ideal ambassadors for the numerous conservation issues that confront us today.
