Independence, or Indy for short, came to the center in 2018 from a Florida rehabilitation center where she was admitted as a baby with a wing injury. Although her wing healed, she imprinted on people during her time in rehab and therefore, is non-releasable. She now serves as one of our ambassadors and helps us educate thousands of people about the importance of raptors. She made her debut flight on September 4, 2021 prior to the Auburn vs. Akron game. Indy weighs around 7 pounds and has a roughly 6-foot wingspan.
