Our Mission Pillars
In the weeks leading up to Giving Tuesday, American Eagle Foundation will be sharing our mission pillars of Conservation, Education, and Protection. Watch our social media for exciting content highlighting our initiatives in each of these areas.
In all we do, conservation is a cornerstone. We understand that “conserve” is a multi-dimensional verb that extends well beyond simply caring for birds of prey. To “conserve” is also to care for their habitats and the biodiversity therein; it is to counter human-driven factors that put our precious wildlife at risk, both native and abroad. Our conservation initiatives include habitat cleanup initiatives, our wild eagle nest cams, and our efforts to counter overseas wildlife crises.
Effective conservation is made possible only through education. Through our own passion for the resident raptors under our care, American Eagle Foundation encourages our community to forge a lasting connection with our incredible birds. Our innovative school curricula incorporate Next Generation Science Standards to combine transferable STEM skillsets with conservation-based messaging.
Though conservation and education may tackle global issues, our mission to protect positively impacts the lives of individual raptors through rehabilitation, propagation, and sanctuary. We take utmost care with the well-being and husbandry of all raptors that pass through our doors. There is no greater privilege than releasing a healthy raptor into the wild.
Donate to join us in our mission of protecting birds of prey!
