Our Team

Founded by Gillian Radcliffe in 2002, The Raptors team is comprised of a small group of caring, knowledgeable biologists and raptor enthusiasts dedicated to the conservation of birds of prey, and the birds themselves.

Gillian’s primary goal in opening the center was to help change the way we think about the delicate balance between man and wildlife within the ecosystem and the essential role raptors play in our natural habitats.

At The Raptors, we believe the best way to impart this important message is to let you see up close how amazing these birds are and learn about the critical roles they play in the ecosystems we all share.

Working 365 days a year with these aeronautic champions has helped us learn how to provide them with the finest standards of care possible. Every staff member and volunteer at The Raptors feels privileged to have the opportunity to learn and grow through interacting with these magnificent birds. We consider these birds our colleagues.
