A Place Called Hope, Killingworth

Wildlife Area · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
We are made up entirely of trained volunteers who devote their time and talents to helping to get these magnificent birds back into the sky!

Sometimes release is not an option for a bird who has suffered certain types of injuries that make it impossible for them to survive on their own in the wild.

We hold special permits obtained by the state of Connecticut and by US Fish and Wildlfie Services that allow us to keep and care for these birds provided we share them with the public through Educational Programs.

That is the FUN part! It is not everyday that a person gets to have an up close and personal encounter with a live Bird of Prey! Our Programs offer information on each species of Raptor and a segment on how you can help to protect them in the environment.

We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization which means we are run entirely on donations of time and money. This labor of LOVE fills our hearts with passion for these incredible Raptors! We are honored to work so closely with each and every one of them!

  • I wish everyone had A place called hope in their state! Christine and Todd are absolutely amazing and everyone that volunteers and works with them! YOU can tell how much they care about the wildlife! We had a peregrine falcon (baby) that noone was willing to help, but Christine and Todd showed up within 45 minutes :) If you have time, please volunteer and help as much as possible, or if not please consider donating to an amazing cause. We need our wildlife! Thank you A Place Called Hope!
  • Today we met Christine doing a release of a Canadian goose at North Farms Reservoir in Wallingford. It was our first live view of a release into the wild. We will promote the center as best we can as we are very limited in donation money. Great experience and a very nice lady. We expect to attend some programs soon.
