Working to protect and rehabilitate the state's many species of predatory birds, Alaska Raptor Center is one of the most extensive organizations of its kind in the country. The facility is set on nearly 7 ha (17 acres) of forest and is home to birds of prey, some of whom will be rehabilitated and eventually released into the wild and some of whom are permanent residents due to their injuries. One of the center's crowning features is its massive flight training center, an enclosed outdoor area where recovering eagles can practice the hunting, landing, and flight skills that may have degraded during their incapacitation. Be sure to watch the birds in action from the viewing corridor. Add Alaska Raptor Center to your Sitka travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Sitka holiday planner.

A must see. Sure, you've seen raptors at zoo's, but this place is different. You feel their mission to rescue some of God's creatures. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. He took the time to educate as well as showing appreciation for our desire to learn more.
Love that they are rehabbing these bald eagles and others! Have beautiful walking trails. We also saw wild bald eagles in this area. We found it all very interesting!!
