One of the most important challenges facing the world today is the preservation, protection and appropriate use of natural resources. The environmental decisions made today will have a monumental impact on wildlife on a global scale and effect the overall quality of life for mankind. We must strive to restore and maintain a level of dynamic balance in nature and minimize the rate at which species of animals, plants and other natural resources are declining. Education will be the key to these efforts.

It is with this perspective that the Raptor Education Foundation (REF) was founded. Raptors represent an ancient romance and passion for the wild, free, and powerful. They also represent diversity in nature at its finest. Soaring provides a special way to sponsor these fascinating birds for all or a portion of one year. By adopting your favorite raptor, you contribute to its housing, care, training, feeding, and maintenance. In addition, your participation provides valuable funding to REF to continue its unique environmental literacy programs.

By participating in Soaring you will become familiar with raptors, their habits, and their distinctive roles in nature. You will receive a special adoption certificate, featuring a color photo and  background information on the raptor you have adopted.  Platinum, Gold and Silver level adoptions will receive additional benefits as well. Platinum and Gold Adoption certificates are framed.

Soaring features five levels of sponsorship: Copper, Bronze,  Silver, Gold, and Platinum . All you need to do is select the raptor of your choice, level and type of sponsorship, complete the application and mail with payment to the Raptor Education Foundation.

Memorial adoptions can be made in any category.  Just make sure you have included the name of the deceased, and since these types of adoptions occur on very little notice, we cannot guarantee your certificate will be framed in time for the funeral service-a rush charge will be applied. Unless instructed otherwise, your Memorial Adoption will also be posted on this page (above) on a permanent basis as a tribute to the individual noted.
