Bird Transport Vehicle

The American Eagle Foundation is rooted in education. Our non-releasable, trained raptors are often transported to venues, schools, veteran homes, and workplaces both in and out-of-state for educational shows. Our current AEF Van is becoming aged and less-reliable. The AEF is in need of a new, safe van to continue this mission. Your donation here will be 100% earmarked towards the purchase of this new vehicle!
