The Beijing Raptor Rescue Center rescues, rehabilitates and returns birds of prey back to the sky.
Birds of prey are protected by law in China. Still, too often, they’re victims of environmental degradation and illegal wildlife trade.
When they’re not captured, killed, or otherwise threatened, they may end up with serious injuries, like bone fractures, broken wings and bullets lodged in their bodies.
In Beijing, part of the major migratory route for raptors, we needed an institution to rescue, rehabilitate, and release these wounded birds back into the wild.
In 2001, we partnered with Beijing Normal University and the Beijing Forestry Bureau to open the Beijing Raptor Rescue Center (BRRC).
The BRRC team treats each bird with the utmost care to ensure their survival in the wild. In addition to rescuing individual birds, BRRC also shares best practices with law enforcement and wildlife rehabilitators around the country.
Every problem has a solution, every solution needs support.
The problems we face are urgent, complicated, and resistant to change. Real solutions demand creativity, hard work, and involvement from people like you.
