Ribs n’ Raptors 2018 A Success!
Thanks to everyone who joined us on a beautiful day November 10th. We met lots of new friends, ate great BBQ and had fun at our silent and live auction. We raised approximately $27,000 from Ribs n’ Raptors and along with pledges from donors, have raised more than $50,000 for the x-ray machine! We are getting close to our goal of $70,000 to purchase the machine plus the additional equipment needed (such as lead vests, electrical upgrades, etc.). Thank you again for making our Ribs n’ Raptors event a huge success and expanding our mission of education and rehabilitation of raptors in Texas.
2018 coming to a close – consider a donation!
2018 is quickly coming to a close (just like raptors, time really does fly) and we would like to thank everyone who has helped the Blackland Prairie Raptor Center continue to expand its mission of education and rehabilitation of birds of prey in Texas. Please consider a donation towards education so we can reach more children (and adults) about the importance of raptors in our north Texas environment. We are in need of equipment, food and educational materials. In rehabilitation it will soon be our busy baby season and we need plenty of food for hungry mouths. Click on the donation button above and donate to your favorite part of our mission to help future generations of Texans and Texas raptors! Thank you for your consideration. Note: the American Kestrel above had been shot with a pellet gun and was just coming out of surgery after removing the pellet. It is fine and will eventually be released.
