Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Teton Raptor Center's overarching goal is to keep wild birds wild and to advance raptor conservation through education, research, and rehabilitation.

Collaboration with agency partners to execute research that will serve management decisions and conservation of species and habitat.

Creating a network of raptor rescuers to expedite injured, ill and orphaned raptors to care throughout the region.

Developing curriculum that will expand raptor literacy in schools and other learning venues throughout the region.

Talented, dedicated, and passionate staff and board members who bring a range of expertise to advance all areas of our mission and organization.

Poo-Poo Project in 50 states and 1 U.S. Territory, and 4 projects in Canada, with over 18,500 screens distributed.

Thirteen research projects in active partnership with 21 agencies and organizations to better understand avian species in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and the Great Plains. These studies are crucial to our state and federal agency partners in helping to provide essential data for management decisions.

502 programs delivered during the fiscal year for 19,335 individuals, each educated through our on-site, virtual, and outreach programs in FY21-22.

Created a statewide (Wyoming) network of raptor rescuers to facilitate prompt transport of injured raptors to care. This volunteer network, in addition to volunteer contributions on-site and in the field, totaled 9,776 hours of donated service in FY 21-22.
