Birds Of Prey World Center

The World Center for Birds of Prey in Boise, Idaho was dedicated in 1984. It is The Peregrine Fund's world headquarters. From here we operate our national and international conservation programs.

The World Center for Birds of Prey
At the World Center for Birds of Prey we propagate birds of prey for release to the wild. We house about 200 falcons and condors for breeding. Research is underway on nutrition, behavior, and many other topics to help us better understand birds of prey and their requirements. Of course, the Center is also the home of our education program, the Velma Morrison Interpretive Center, and the Herrick Collections Building which we hope you will visit. The Velma Morrison Interpretive Center is The Peregrine Fund's one-of-a-kind indoor/outdoor education center where you'll meet eagles, owls, vultures, hawks, and falcons from around the world.
