Welcome to the Raptor Trust
The Raptor Trust is one of the premier wild bird rehabilitation centers in the United States. Located in central New Jersey, the Trust includes a hospital with state-of-the-art medical facilities, quality exterior housing for several hundred birds, and an education building. A stalwart advocate for birds of prey for three decades, it is now recognized as a national leader in the fields of raptor conservation and avian rehabilitation.The Raptor Trust is open to the public seven days a week.

We receive no government support and rely on private contributions for our day-to-day survival.
