The World Center for Birds of Prey in Boise, Idaho, is the headquarters for The Peregrine Fund, an international non-profit organization founded in 1970 that conserves endangered raptors around the world.
Built 38 years ago in 1984, the World Center for Birds of Prey is located on 580 acres (2.3 km2) on a hilltop overlooking Boise, south of the airport and east of Kuna. The campus consists of the business offices of The Peregrine Fund, breeding facilities for endangered raptors, the Velma Morrison Interpretive Center, and the Herrick Collections Building, which houses a large research library and the Archives of Falconry.

The Peregrine Fund is known for its worldwide conservation and recovery efforts of rare and endangered raptors. The organization's first recovery effort focused on the peregrine falcon, which was facing extinction due to the widespread use of the chemical DDT. The peregrine falcon was removed from the U.S. Endangered Species list in 1999 at an international celebration held in Boise.

  • Our family enjoyed the "Fall Flights" outdoor stadium raptor education experience, visiting the museum and the excitement of seeing diverse raptors in their protective, outdoor enclosures. WCBP...

  • Truly loved this place! The staff is amazing and pricing is great for every budget and most importantly the entry feed goes to feeding the birds there and to help save endangered species like the California Condor through the sites breeding facilities! Amazing and informative place to visit with awesome displays of the birds housed here, such as the one I attended where the falcon flew around the room you're inside while the staff member explained the bird and the things the fund is doing to save the falcon and other birds of prey from extinction! I highly recommend this place for everyone to visit! If you can visit I highly encourage you to go to their website and donate money to help these birds survive and thrive well into the future!
  • Super interesting! Love that you got to see different birds. A little small right now but they are remodeling and adding an outdoor theater and an interactive zone coming in July 2022. Excited for that and we'll be coming back.
