The Stauber Raptor Facility

The Stauber Raptor Facility houses recovering and resident birds in the Raptor Rehabilitation Program at WSU. The Raptor Rehabilitation Program provides medical care, food, and shelter to sick or injured birds, returning them to the wild whenever possible. Resident birds that are not able to be returned to the wild are cared for at the college and participate in public education programs through the WSU Raptor Club, a non-profit volunteer organization founded in 1981.  The facility was renamed the Stauber Raptor Facility in 2013 to honor veterinary professor and raptor specialist, Dr. Erik Stauber, who devoted 40 years to WSU and caring for raptors.
