A number of raptors came down from Antigo from REGI to help educated people about what the non-profit does. This was all a part of the Wings over Wausau event.
Money raised helps the non-profit continue to shelter and take care of wild birds after injuries. The public was able to see the animals first hand. Organizers say that the experience of rehabilitating an animal is what they work so hard for.
Molly McKay, director of education for REGI said, “It’s the best feeling when you release the animal back into the wild. We are all feeling amazing after a release happens.”
15 different species of birds where at the Grand Theatre in Wausau free public. Owls, vultures, hawks, and falcons made the experience great for adults and children.
