Illinois Raptor Center seeks funds for larger incubators to care for eagles

CHICAGO, IL – The Illinois Raptor Center (IRC) is seeking funds for larger incubators to provide better care for injured eagles. The center’s latest patient, an adult Bald Eagle from the Bloomington area, arrived in poor condition, dehydrated and with very low blood pressure. 

Though its lead rate was not as bad as in some other birds, the eagle’s condition remains critical. The center has set up a large steel cage with oxygen and a garbage bag draped over the door to contain the oxygen. 

The IRC currently has incubators for hawks and falcons, but larger equipment is needed to contain the warmth and oxygen necessary for the comfort and recovery of eagles. 

The center’s directors have found the incubators they need and have set up a GoFundMe page to raise the necessary funds. With spring coming, the center expects more eagle admissions and wants to ensure they receive the best care possible.
