Rescue and Rehabilitation

At the Mara Raptor Project we believe that rehabilitating injured or sick raptors is ethical and can be a valuable conservation tool. All birds rescued by our team are rehabbed by the Kenya Bird of Prey Trust; Kenya's leading raptor rehabilitation organization. The vast majority of bird's that we rescue are vultures poisoned as a result of human-wildlife conflict. When responding to poisoning incidents we work closely with the Kenya Wildlife Service, The Peregrine Fund's 'Vulture Protectors' led by Eric ole Reson, Birdlife International, Nature Kenya, The Mara Elephant project and the Cottar's Wildlife and Conservation Trust.
