About the Nowthwest Raptor Center by Videographer, Richard Aronson

In loving Memory

10502152_10152655640174416_1357571656364138824_nWe have some Bad News to report at the Center. Our Volunteer Brandon Chesser has passed, unexpectedly and suddenly. He was a ROCK for the Critters and for Jaye.  A person you could ALWAYS Count On to be there when you need him. The Raptor Center is going to be very hard pressed to find someone who can fill his shoes.

I Hope he knows how important he was to all of us. I speak for Myself, Jaye and the rest of the Volunteers who have worked with him. ~~~Linda Gambrel

About NWRC

The Northwest Raptor & Wildlife Center in Sequim, Washingtonis a state-licensed  501(c)(3) nonprofit organization devoted to rehabilitating and caring for injured, orphaned, abandoned, or permanently incapacitated wildlife.

With a special emphasis on caring for raptors (birds of prey), the Center is the Olympic Peninsula’s foremost wildlife rehabilitation and protection organization and is fully licensed and equipped to care for the needs of any endangered animal.  The Center also specializes in promoting conservation of local habitat and wildlife by presenting environmental education programs and public outreach events using wild raptors.

By Donation Only

Your donations at work.

All work is done by Director Jaye Moore, her husband Gary, the generous support of Greywolf Veterinary Hospital, and dedicated unpaid volunteers.  On average, it costs the Center $1000 per year to feed and maintain each of the Center’s permanent residents, not to mention the hundreds of injured or abandoned animals that are successfully rehabilitated and released each year.  The Center requires the monetary donations of supporters worldwide to be able to continue its work protecting the wildlife of Washington.

The Northwest Raptor & Wildlife Center accepts financial donations (which are tax-deductible) and is interested in donations of large plots of land in the Olympic Peninsula than can be developed into new refuges for rehabbing injured wildlife and housing permanently incapacitated wildlife.

Injured or Abandoned Animals

If you find an injured or abandon animal, please visit our Wildlife Emergencies page and then call Jaye at 360-681-2283.
