Rodney Paul is the Director of Raptor Rehab of Central Arkansas (RRCA), a non-profit founded in 2003. RRCA’s mission is to care for ill, injured, or orphaned birds of prey, and to be able to release them back into the wild. RRCA holds a raptor rehabilitation and education license from the US Fish and Wildlife Service. They work closely with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission recovering various birds of prey. Their facility has over 3000 square feet of flight pens built to strict specifications.
Feeding and caring for raptors is quite costly. Raptors require a specialized diet, and often eat as much one-third of their body weight a day. They operate out of love for these creatures, many of which have fallen victim to human threats, and otherwise would not survive without rehabilitation. Tax-deductible donations are appreciated, and 100% goes to care and food for the birds.
