After visiting the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey yesterday in Maitland, it’s easy to see why Massey Services is proud to support this amazing organization.
From caring for injured birds and continuing research and scientific programs to connecting people with nature, the Center soars as one of Central Florida’s hidden gems. Opened in 1979, the Center has treated over 12,000 injured or orphaned raptors and released more than 40% of these birds back into the wild. The Center handles the largest volume of eagles, owls, falcons, hawks and kites east of the Mississippi River, and remains a leader among all North American rehabilitation centers for specialized eagle care.
In addition, the Center provides environmental education programming to over 20,000 local students, teachers, and visitors annually, while promoting a culture of conservation toward birds of prey and their habitats. A nationally renowned research institute, the Center is a leading voice in the ongoing fight to save endangered and threatened birds of prey.
It has often been said that our future is intertwined with the fate of birds. If that is true, then it is crucial that we join forces with the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey to not only care for injured or displaced raptors, but also to shape our future.

As Theodore Roosevelt, 26th U.S. President and Honorary Audubon Vice President, said, “Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources…the history…the romance, for your children and your children’s children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance.”
