With less than 500 condors living today, the California condor remains one of the world’s rarest bird species. This remarkable animal is also one of the longest-living birds with a lifespan of up to 60 years. If you’d like to see one of these rare birds up close, visit the World Center for Birds of Prey in Boise, which houses the world’s largest captive flock.

The World Center for Birds of Prey is a one-of-a-kind indoor/outdoor education center where you’ll meet eagles, owls, vultures, hawks and falcons from around the world. Some of these are rare or endangered species you might never see in the wild. These hands-on exhibits teach about raptors and the critical role they play in monitoring our environment and explains what makes a bird of prey a bird of prey. There’s live raptor demonstrations daily and a Smithsonian-quality exhibit on falconry where you’ll find the most comprehensive English language falconry library in the world!

Erin Katzner, education director, says the center is a great way to get kids excited about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, or STEM, concepts as they learn about raptor ecology and conservation. Of the 50,000 visitors per year who come to the center, approximately 5,000 are students.
