Raptors face numerous challenges in today's world. Humans worldwide are plowing up habitat at an alarming rate to make room for food and bio fuel crops, as well as urban development. Avian malaria and blood parasites have increased and diseases are spreading geographically. Raptors also continue to suffer trauma injuries from man made obstacles and poisonings on an almost daily basis. The Raptor Center is in a unique position to decode what's happening in the natural world. Every bird admitted to The Raptor Center provides a clue to the health of the ecosystems we share. It is essential that we understand the challenges raptors face if the natural world is to be protected.
