Help to protect our birds of prey and owls – take over or give away a sponsorship. The amount paid for the sponsorship directly benefits the protégé and is used for expenses such as food, veterinary surgeon, medication and maintenance of the keeping facility. There, sick and injured birds of prey and owls are nursed to health under veterinary care and released into freedom again.
Already from a monthly amount of 12,50 Euro you will receive a sponsorship certificate and an annual admission ticket so that you can visit your protégé during regular opening hours. Sponsorship contributions are used for a specific purpose and are tax deductible (donation receipt).
Giving back to nature – return to the “wild” life.
At Guttenberg Castle, the team of the German Raptor Center prepares the birds for their reintroduction into the wild through targeted flight training, the “controlled game flight”. This is a centuries-old falconer training method which Konrad Lorenz, the founder of modern behavioral research, has described as the only suitable aid for injured birds of prey.
While the birds of prey become controlled and show their free hunting flights over the Neckar valley, the falconer can judge whether the griffin or the owl has sufficient flying skills and is ready for release to the wild.
The costs for this successful work are borne by the German Raptor Center alone. However, private individuals or state authorities support individual projects. Please help us!
