The Sharon Audubon Center is home to a number of non-releasable birds. The majority of the birds are housed in large outside, predator-proof aviaries, filled with natural vegetation and various perching options. The birds serve as education ambassadors for their species, accompanying Audubon staff to education programs at schools, community events, and other venues—teaching thousands of people about the importance of protecting these amazing animals and their natural habitats.
Many of the reptiles that are housed in our Visitor Center building, were either once pets who could no longer be cared for or have injuries that prevent them from surviving in the wild. All of our animals are treated with respect and given the best possible care, including fresh food, water, veterinary checks, and enrichment activities. We invite the public to visit our Visitor Center and Raptor Aviaries to learn more about these animals.
