Eagle Encounters receives around 200 injured, poisoned, abandoned and illegally hand-raised birds of prey annually. Our main objective always is to rehabilitate and release as efficiently as possible. We are proud of our 65% release rate. Only those birds and animals that have been illegally hand-reared (therefore human-imprinted) call Eagle Encounters their permanent home. These animals become ambassadors for their species, as they are the stars of our education and eco-tourism programs. Eagle Encounters functions as part of a network of organizations (including Cape Nature and the SPCA) who all have the wellbeing of our wildlife at heart. Through various conservation programs (such as owl box manufacture & installation, ringing, nest recording, outreaches, etc.) we are trying to ensure that our future generations will also get to enjoy our amazing wildlife. We are for animals!
