Avian Education 101

Not all birds are released back to the wild. Only about 40% recover enough to be released. Some of the ones that are non-releasable are entered into our Bird TLC Education Program. These birds are used to teach the general public about their species. Here Ron presents a Northern Goshawk at the Alaska Zoo. In the background, Gloria presents a Red Tailed Hawk. This type of presentation is informal. People can ask questions at random and move on when they please. At other presentations we've done at clubs, businesses, etc there's been just one bird and the presenter gives a very in depth report on the bird and it's species.
