The Birds of Prey Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is dedicated to the rehabilitation  and release of injured and orphaned wildlife, primarily raptors, such as eagles, hawks, falcons and owls, and returning healthy member of the breeding population back to their natural habitat.

Each year, over 700 birds arrive for care from all over Colorado and neighboring states. Since 1980, the Birds of Prey Foundation  has accepted over 16,000 birds. Specialized round-the-clock care and large flight areas enable hundreds of these magnificent raptors to enjoy a second chance at freedom every year. Most birds that we admit have injuries, which can be attributed to accidental or intentional human interference. They have collided with cars or flown into windows, barbed wire or power lines. They have been senselessly shot or poisoned. They have been taken from the nest and often have severe nutritional deficiencies. They arrive with injuries such as broken bones, concussions, and damage to eyes, ears, and feathers, not to mention diseases. The birds are often depressed, scared and in severe pain, yet they have an incredible will to live.

Around the world, many raptor populations are declining due to human interference. Their future depends on us! By fostering compassion for wildlife in distress and teaching new generations about conservation through mentorships, internships, lecures, and volunteer programs, we give these Colorado predators a second chance. We work continuously to improve the quality of care and housing of captive raptors everywhere, through education, observation and exemplary ethics in their treatment and husbandry. Through our efforts we work hard toward protection for raptors in the wild through education, invention and intervention. If we give the time to adjust to the ever-growing urbanization, if we set aside places for them to live and teach our children to respect and admire their beauty, we can all live together.
