Care and Management of Captive Raptors Workshop 2015

TRC staff Dan Hnilicka demonstrated some
techniques for working safely with education
raptors, using a stuffed hawk for a model before working
directly with TRC's winged ambassadors.
This week, TRC hosted 24 participants from 13 states for our Care and Management of Captive Raptors workshop.   Behavioral training techniques for education, handling, enhance your organization's message through live education animals, and basic exam procedures were just a few of the topics covered with our world-renowned staff.
Monitoring the health of raptors in a facility
is not only paramount, but ongoing.  Participants
observed as TRC clinic staff veterinarian Dr. Michelle
Willette talked about foot care for a great
horned owl patient.
