Barb Rogers has devoted 28 years to working with her husband, Joe, to monitor and research various birds of prey. Her experience ranges from bald eagle nest studies to peregrine falcon reintroduction and monitoring. With a tender heart for orphaned and injured raptors, Barb also cares for those who come to their organization annually.

The Wildlife Recovery Association: Advocates of the Wild

Wildlife Recovery Association is a non-profit organization that aims to promote the understanding and protection of wild hawks, owls, eagles, and falcons. Through Michigan’s Nongame Wildlife Fund, in collaboration with other environmental institutions, they have been instrumental in reintroducing and monitoring peregrine falcons in Michigan’s Wild Sites. To see the fruits of their labor, check out their heart-warming 2009 YouTube video of a rescued adult Bald Eagle’s release after rehabilitation here.
