Raptors are birds of prey with very keen vision and sharp, curved talons and beaks. Some species are diurnal and others nocturnal.
“Raptor” is derived from the Latin word “rapere” which means to seize, take or carry away.
Raptors’ well-developed eyes and ears take up so much room on their skulls that there is little room left for olfactory organs. It is impossible to say how acute their sense of smell might be.
Wildlife Rescue’s Vision is that humans come to see that we are members of a vast life community, that we experience the proper gratitude and respect for this community, and that we live in a more appropriate and compassionate manner in relation to the whole.
WRR was founded in 1977 in San Antonio, Texas. Since 2001 its primary base of operations has been located on 212 acres near Kendalia, Texas, a property which was purchased through the generosity of three of our supporters.
