So many ways to support us!

Wings and Talons is 501(c)3 non-profit located in Illinois. We are an all-volunteer organization dedicated to protecting these magnificent birds and educating the public about their amazing adaptations and importance to the environment. All proceeds from donations and programs go straight towards providing excellent care, training, and housing for our birds. All of our residents are non-releasable raptors that due to injury or imprinting, are unable to return to their home in the wild.

Licensed rehabilitation centers around the country strive to return every injured bird of prey that comes into their care back into the wild, but some would not be able to survive on their own anymore. Organizations like Wings and Talons are then able to step in and provide a future for these birds as educational ambassadors. Without centers like ours, these raptors would be euthanized.

Every year, Wings and Talons provides hundreds of hours of educational programs for schools, park districts, nature centers, and more. Our birds are housed on park district land, but all costs for the care and maintenance of our birds comes from donations, sales, programs, and grants. We do not receive any government funding.  Your generous donation supports and sustains our mission of raptor education, stewardship, and conservation.

Our biggest expense is feeding our birds. We spend thousands of dollars every year making sure our birds receive the correct nutrition to remain healthy. These supplies cannot be found in a grocery store. We use to gather the mice, quail, and more we feed our raptors. You can ensure your gift goes directly to the birds by purchasing a gift card on their behalf.

When purchasing a gift certificate, make sure to write as the recipient email address and it’ll deliver a code straight to our inbox. We’ll then be able to use that code on our next food purchase for the birds.
