The Raptor Sanctuary Fund

Raptor Sanctuary Fund

Be a Raptor Monthly Supporter

More than 8,000 native birds had been received from the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department, the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and members of the public in the 30 years operation of the Jim Ades Raptor Sanctuary (Raptor Sanctuary).  More than 50% of the rescued birds have been successfully rehabilitated and released. 

Our resident Raptors which include native and exotic hawks and owls are an integral part of KFBG. Each of these birds has a tragic story behind how they came to KFBG. They remind us humans that we play a vital role in the health of wild animals, their habitats and the world we share. 

The Jim Ades Raptor Sanctuary depends on your support. Your donation will help feed, house, and provide medical care for our resident Raptors, who are unable to return to the wild due to disabilities and permanent injuries. 


You can help us by undertaking the below actions:




KFBG took up the role of raptor rescue and rehabilitation recognising an existing gap regarding the veterinary and nursing care of injured and sick birds in Hong Kong. Thus, we developed the first Raptor Sanctuary of Hong Kong in 1994. The programme was sanctioned by the authorities and its key aim is to rehabilitate birds of prey and owls, where possible, and release the native species back into the wild. If you look up, you may see some of our former patients wheeling in the sky. 

Sadly, some raptors are permanently disabled and cannot be released as they have lost their survival skills. If they are suitable, some may spend the rest of their lives at KFBG, joining our public education programmes. Meeting and observing the live bird exhibit will develop empathy for the birds and an increased understanding of the natural and man-made pressures they face in the wild. Also, seeing the birds and learning about their stories may help some visitors to connect or reconnect with nature which is a key goal for KFBG programmes. 

Your compassion can further support us with the care of the rescued raptors and maintenance of the educational exhibits.
