The Western Kentucky Raptor Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of birds of prey through public education, rehabilitation of injured or orphaned raptors and the reconditioning and release of those raptors utilizing falconry techniques.

Our facility is located at Yellow Creek Park where we are rapidly growing and will continue to grow as more people in the community learn the appropriate methods of working with birds in the wild.
Established in 2006, the WKRC has worked diligently with the community of Owensboro and surrounding areas to educate the public on the importance of birds of prey in our environment and how the conservation of native species is integral to the health and sustainability of our ecosystem.
