Raptor Refuge Education Program

Welcome to the Raptor Refuge Education Program. The aim of this program is to inspire students about birds of prey, see rehabilitated birds up close and learn ways to help protect them. All activities are linked to the National Curriculum Profiles and teachers can select topics of interest to their students. Activities are aimed at primary, secondary and college-aged students.

Registration is currently open.

To make a booking, go to the Raptor Refuge website.

You will be sent an email confirming your registration of interest has been received and a staff member will contact you to confirm that time is still available and discuss the program.

Schools will be responsible for getting their students to the Kettering site where a Discovery Ranger or other bird specialist will be available to run 2 to 3 hour sessions. The cost for these sessions is $350 for up to 3 hours. Only one class (10-25 students) can be catered for at any one time.
