The World of Raptors iCal

Wednesday, June 12 2013 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

This Onondaga Audubon program meeting will allow raptor lovers to get up close and personal with some of their favorites birds. Guest speaker Jean Soprano, of Kindred Kingdoms Wildlife Rehabilitation in Pennellville, N.Y., will present a live raptor show and speak about raptors’ special adaptations for survival. Founded in 1997 by Jean Soprano and Len Soprano, Kindred Kingdoms is a not-for-profit facility initially opened to rehabilitate small mammals and birds. Eventually the organization expanded to include black bear. In 2012, Kindred Kingdoms merged with Feathers and Friends, a center dedicated to the rehabilitation of birds of prey and community education. At this point, the organization changed its policy from accepting all animals and birds to working only with black bears and birds of prey. In an effort to provide the best medical treatment with the least amount of stress possible for injured and orphaned wildlife, Kindred Kingdoms has built several shelters on its 40-acre site, providing ‘patients’ with a natural habitat, fresh air, and familiar sounds and smells of nature until they can return to the wild. In 2012, Kindred Kingdoms rehabbed and released 5 bald eagles, more than a dozen bears, and a variety of hawks and owls.
