What can I do to support the CRP?

The Cornell Raptor Program CRP Donorsis a student volunteer organization which depends on donations and grants to operate. Your financial help is needed to provide food, housing, care, and maintenance for resident birds and to support our education, rehabilitation, and captive breeding programs.

CRP Honor Roll of Raptor Conservation:

The CRP is primarily supported by a NYS Department and Recreation grant for zoological and education facilities which supports our daily food, health care, and basic facility maintenance.  The volunteer efforts of the undergraduate education presenters also bring in donations from our public programs which go towards bird care and vehicle rentals used for transportation to the programs.

We continue to seek grant and private funding for paid student internships, our resident veterinary technician, aviary enrichment and remodeling, and undergraduate research.

Thank you to the following CRP supporters:

  • George Kok ’82 & Lisa Espisito ’83 – Dec. 2017
  • George & Barbara Howell Family – June 2017
