Southeastern Raptor Center
Education. Rehabilitation. Tradition.
The Southeastern Raptor Center (SRC) is a regional rehabilitation and education facility. The SRC is a non-profit organization and charges nominal fees to assist with education and rehabilitation efforts. The SRC also accepts donations to support its critical work of education, rehabilitation and conservation.

The mission of the Southeastern Raptor Center is to provide the highest quality medical care and rehabilitation for wild raptors, support raptor conservation efforts, expand the public’s knowledge about raptors, inspire their passion for raptor ecosystems, and to embolden the Auburn spirit.
SRC accomplishes its mission by:
- Collaborating with faculty and staff of the College of Veterinary Medicine

- Providing rehabilitation services to raptors in need and guidance to the public seeking assistance with injured or orphaned wildlife.
- Providing hands-on experiences for veterinary and undergraduate students while maintaining the highest quality of care.
- Supporting raptor conservation by participating in relevant research initiatives
