Educational Animals of CLAWS

Below are the animals that are available for educational programs. We are very careful to ensure that our animals, as well as our participants are safe and happy. Some of the species we take in simply are not suitable for programs with small children, we will be happy to help you choose which animals are most appropriate for your event.

Only birds will be at any outdoor events.

CLAWS is one of only 17 licensed raptor educators in the state of North Carolina.

The health of our animals is very important to us. All of our animals are seen by a vet a minimum of once a year for a physical. Each has any shots that are appropriate, all that can be are vaccinated for rabies and other things (this includes skunk, foxes, raccoon and kinkajous) are, and all are tested for parasites at least yearly and wormed regularly as a preventative.
