Raptor Project soars to the Brevard Zoo

Visit the Raptors – Brevard Zoo January 19-21, 2013

Brevard Zoo will host a three-day special exhibit featuring impressive birds of prey January 19-21, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. The exhibit, called The Raptor Project, will feature 15 to 20 raptors from all over the world, plus a chance to see a few take flight and learn about these amazing birds from master falconer and wildlife rehabilitator for more than 40 years, Jonathan Wood. Wood will host two shows each day at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. inside the Nyami Nyami River Lodge. The exhibit is free with paid Zoo admission.

Wood’s collection includes eagles, hawks, falcons, and owls, representative from every habitat on the planet including the arctic, desert, rainforest, wetlands, prairie, woodlands, and tundra. Although many of his flock have permanent handicaps barring them from re-entry into the wild, these flaws are hard to detect. Today they have been tamed and trained as charming ambassadors of the species.
