Continuing Education for Wildlife Rehabilitators
If you are a wildlife volunteer interested in learning more about caring for raptors, we encourage you to join the Society in order to take advantage of our training and support network. As a member, you can be assigned a mentor who will work with you and assist you as you learn. If you or your group would simply like either a full or half day educational session (seminar or workshop) we can assist you. The advanced techniques used on raptors are sometimes applicable to many other bird species.
Continuing Education for Animal Health Professionals
If you are an animal health professional (Veterinary Surgeon or Veterinary Nurse) the Society can provide continuing education seminars and workshops for you and your staff in the specialised area of raptor care. We can train you in safe handling techniques, assessment and primary care, and provide you with emergency contacts who can help you when you require assistance. Contact us for more information. We have rehabilitators in Perth, Geraldton, Margaret River, Nannup (WA) and Townsville (Qld) who can visit your facility and provide an education session on safe handling.
Continuing Education for Students
If you are undergoing a recognised course of tertiary study to become an animal health professional and are seeking to expand your knowledge and gain practical experience with raptors, we may be able to assist you. Our primary location for this kind of education is the Eagles Heritage Raptor Wildlife Centre in Margaret River so you may need to organise travel and accommodation. Contact us for more information.
Educational Sessions for Schools
School visits can be tailored to fit in with most class curriculae and our facilitators are happy to discuss prospective sessions with teachers and parents. We have licensed facilitators based in Perth, Margaret River, Nannup, Geraldton and Karratha in WA and our newest educator in Townsville who can visit your school with raptors for a unique educational experience. Contact us for more information.
Educational Sessions for Community Groups and Events
Our licensed educators can visit your community group or event with mobile displays and raptors. Event organisers are advised that welfare considerations for our birds are a priority, so our educators may require shade, access to water and a space away from excessive noise from entertainment stages and/or loudspeakers.
To book an individual raptor educator, please see the list below:
