The Northwest Raptor & Wildlife Center in Sequim, Washington is 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
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.

Greg K – March 2017 – ★★★★★ – These people do such a great job caring for these wild creatures.
Heather R – July 2016 – ★★★★★ – Toured with the Olympic nature home-school group last week. Kiddo is still talking about all the wonderful birds and how they each live in the wild.
Christy J. M – June 2016 – ★★★★★ – When you came to Sussex County, NJ, my daughter and I loved it. It was amazing God blessing you to take care of them and your family. Proud of you. Those are beautiful birds, something you do see every day, and you have a beautiful family. I’d like to see more. We will be moving in December to Bergen county, do you have shows there?
