About WA Birds of Prey

The Western Australian Birds of Prey Centre gives you an opportunity to learn about birds of prey and see them in flight.

My name is Yvonne Sitko, and I establisheEducational School Displaysd the WA Birds of Prey Centre in 2005. I’ve been involved in rescue, rehabilitation and release back into the wild of birds of prey since 2000. I am licenced by the WA Department of Conservation and Land Management.

 

 

Some sick or injured birds are unable to be released back into the wild. Depending on the bird’s personality, they might join my flight display.
The displays educate people about the importance of conserving the natural habitat for birds of prey. The birds demonstrate a lot of their natural behaviours through flight and feeding.

 

Recently Auzzie, a young and very proud Wedgetail Eagle, has been flying free at the Optus Stadium with the West Coast Eagles. Auzzie is a great ambassador for Wedgetails and birds of prey in general. It was not that long ago that Wedgetails were shot. So it is great to have Auzzie educating West Australians about conservation and habitat preservation.
