Welcome to the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey

Celebrating conservation, rehabilitation and education

Many Audubon nature centers are currently closed as a result of COVID-19.  Please check this webpage for the latest updates on Audubon center closures. For the safety of our guests, staff and volunteers, our Center is currently closed. As responsible members of our communities, Audubon has also cancelled all public programs provided by our nature centers (including camp), educators, and other outreach staff through July 30th. The work of Audubon won’t stop-- though most staff are working from home, we have essential staff onsite caring for birds that reside at our Center and patients that arrive at our doors. We will continue to update you on plans to re-open once they are finalized. Please call if you have an injured bird of prey for specific steps in bringing an injured raptor to our facility 407-644-0190. We appreciate your support – please stay safe wherever you are.
Located in the city of Maitland and the Town of Eatonville, this urban environmental Audubon Center focuses on the rescue, medical treatment, rehabilitation and release of Florida’s raptors. Grounding our roots in conservation, Maitland hosted the first Florida Audubon Society meeting in March 1900 to save Florida's imperiled wading birds. Today, Audubon Center for Birds of Prey carries on that mission of protecting and saving Florida’s birds of prey. We invite you to experience our unique location, tucked along Lake Sybelia, just outside Orlando. Visitors can learn about the unique adaptations of raptors, challenges they face and the many ways to get involved with helping birds of prey and the important habitats and resources they depend on.
