Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation

Green Chimneys maintains nearly 50 birds of prey at the Paul C. Kupchok Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, which provides rescue, rehabilitation and continued care for injured, orphaned and distressed wildlife, primarily birds of prey.

The Wildlife Center features an education center, animal triage care area, large display and flight cages, woodland paths and naturalistic habitats. Our wildlife residents include local and rare breeds—Andean condor; Griffon vulture; numerous hawks, falcons, and owls; several crows; and permanently disabled bald and golden eagles.

Licensed by the Department of Environmental Conservation and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the Wildlife Center rescues and cares for diverse species of:

  • Hawks
  • Falcons
  • Eagles
  • Owls
  • Vultures

Our goal is to release as many animals as possible back into the wild. Those that can be rehabilitated will be returned to nature; those with permanent disabilities are sheltered here, where they provide a special learning experience for the children—and staff—at Green Chimneys.
