To educate, inspire, and empower people to protect the Earth's environment.
Windows on Wildlife is a 501(c)3 educational organization dedicated to inspiring people with a love of nature and a desire to protect it. Our focus is on raptors, or birds of prey, because they are at the top of food webs and therefore key indicators of how healthy an ecosystem is.
The programs we offer cover various aspects of raptor life such as where they live, what special features they have developed for survival, and where they fit in the web of life. Our programs are designed to be fun and engaging and can be enjoyed by people of all ages: from preschoolers to senior citizens. All our programs are aligned with the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. And all include live owls and hawks.
The birds we use in our programs are considered "nonreleasable." This means they could not survive in the wild if we were to let them go. For example, our Barred Owl was accidentally hit by a car and lost some of her ability to see. She was in rehabilitation but never regained the full use of her eyesight. Therefore she canít see well enough to live in the woods. In addition, we have licenses from the state and federal governments to take care of these birds and to show them to people in an educational setting.
