Raptors reborn

| 0 comments

They reside in the higher air currents of our minds, symbolizing freedom, wisdom and strength. Sometimes even these hardy survivors need a helping hand due to disease, illegal shootings, lead poisoning or accidents. That’s when the Raptor Education Group Inc. (REGI) outside Antigo steps in as avian first responders. Founded in 1990, REGI has rehabilitated and released thousands of raptors and other bird species back into the wild. There are some birds whose injuries or illnesses were so severe, however, that they can’t be released. At REGI, these birds get a new career as educators, teaching thousands about wildlife ecology and preservation.
