Avian Conservation Center
For more than 25 years the Avian Conservation Center has worked to identify and address vital environmental issues through avian medicine, research, education programs, and conservation initiatives.
The Center has three primary operating departments that work together to support this goal: the Center for Birds of Prey, the Avian Medical Clinic, and the South Carolina Oiled Bird Treatment Facility.

The Injured Bird Program
The Avian Medical Clinic operates 365 days a year and each day we receive calls about injured birds in need of help.
Our patients represent a variety of birds of prey and shorebird species and their injuries can range from unknown to critical.
Working with wildlife, especially when they are compromised by an injury or illness, is an advanced skill, so we rely on a network of trained volunteers located throughout South Carolina to assist with these calls.

Transport Volunteer Training Workshop
Because of the high number of calls we receive from the Beaufort County area, this training workshop is being hosted at the Sea Pines Community Center with the desired goal of increasing the number of trained Transport Volunteers in Beaufort and adjacent counties, specifically.
During this training workshop, you will have the opportunity to learn techniques for capturing and transporting injured wild birds from the field to the Avian Medical Clinic.
We will provide both Level I – Transport training as well as Level II – Capture training for all those who are interested.
