Wendy & Spirit at the Capitol Rotunda



Our "Wings of Wonder - West Virginia Birds of Prey" presentation is fairly general in scope,custom-tailored to the ages and needs of our audiences. Each presentation includes live birds of prey from TRAC, and the individual case history of each raptor is discussed. Program topics included vary as to their emphasis, but all presentations include the following:

  • habitat and the role of raptors in the ecosystem
  • why we have laws protecting raptors and other wild birds
  • a discussion of the most common hazards they face daily
  • the work we do at TRAC to return threatened wild birds to their native habitats.

  • Question and answer sessions are an important part of our presentations. Program length is flexible; normally it runs from 45 minutes to one hour.
