The basics

The Alaska Raptor Center is one of Sitka’s most popular attractions and a visit to the center is included on most sightseeing tours of Sitka. Daily tours of the center are offered during the summer months and tours are included in the admission price.

Visitors can meet the resident birds and hear the stories of how they arrived at the center. It's also possible to view birds regaining their flight abilities at the Flight Training Center; and if you’re lucky, attend a release event and watch the raptors fly back into their natural habitats.

The Alaska Raptor Center Birds

Birds end up at the center for a variety of reasons. The birds come from all over Alaska and the center aims to return them to the wild once healed. Birds no longer able to live in the wild find homes in zoos or wildlife centers across the United States. One of the center’s long-time residents is Volta, a bald eagle permanently injured after flying into a power line along the Sitka waterfront in 1992.
