The Raptor Trust stands with the Black Lives Matter movement and all those working to turn the tide on American racism, discrimination, and inequality. Common to each grisly story of recent violent attacks against Black Americans is a fundamental lack of humanity that is at odds with the mission of our organization. We feel a responsibility to speak up and to act.
As an environmental organization, our focus is biodiversity, but we also endorse ethnic and cultural diversity. Social and environmental justice are equally necessary to provide a safe and secure future for the next generation. In addition to the current cultural and economic inequalities, we are also facing unprecedented environmental challenges, many of which disproportionately impact BIPOC communities.
Going forward, The Raptor Trust will make financial assistance available to educational institutions (schools, scout groups, religious groups, and others) to increase access to the environmental education programs we are so proud to offer. Support for these programs will come from the Len and Diane Soucy Memorial Fund, established in memory of The Raptor Trust’s founders, both of whom believed in equal opportunities for environmental education for all.
The Raptor Trust has provided free medical care to all species of wild birds since 1983. The Trust has a fully equipped medical infirmary, including an intensive care wing. The Raptor Trust provides care for approximately 50% of all birds and 25% of all wildlife admitted to rehabilitation centers in New Jersey. The number of birds we admit each year has increased from 2,000 in 1990 to over 6,000 in 2018.
The Raptor Trust is located in Millington on White Bridge Road, bordering the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. We are home to approximately 50 resident birds, an on-site medical and rehabilitation center and education center.
The Raptor Trust is currently closed to visitors, but remains open for bird admitting.
