About Eagles Heritage Eagles Heritage is was opened on 1 January, 1987.
A tourist attraction set amongst 29 acres of natural bushland, is situated 5km south west of Margaret River on Boodjidup Road. Out of a need to provide homes for permanently disabled birds of prey and owls which had been handed in and cared for by volunteers, but which, due to the nature of their injuries, were unable to make a recovery sufficient for their return to the wild.
The park opened its gates to the public for the first time on New Year’s Day in 1998.
The fauna you see on display at Eagles Heritage are permanently disabled rehabilitation patients, captive bred birds and individuals which have been transferred in from other facilities.
Many more birds are rehabilitated and returned to the wild each year. Away from the public view, seven acres at Eagles Heritage has been set aside for wildlife rehabilitation, including a hospital and specialized facilities designed to help sick, injured and orphaned raptors return to the wild.
When you visit them, your admission and purchases help them to continue our work in the area of wildlife conservation. The balance are those which have been captive bred or transferred from other wildlife facilities. The centre provides training and support for volunteer wildlife rehabilitators who wish to work with these unique and amazing birds.
Education opportunities are also available for animal health professionals and students seeking to expand their skills. Eagles Heritage is proud to be associated with the Society for the Preservation of Raptors (Inc.), a not-for-profit association dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and conservation of birds of prey and owls.
As well as is being a great place to spot some beautiful birds, it also has a strong focus on education, rehabilitation and endangered species breeding. There’s two walk options to see the birds; the 1km wildflower walk (which is beautiful in spring) takes 40 minutes or if you’ve not got a lot of time to spare take the short walk, which takes about 15 minutes.
The Eagles Heritage Centre is self-funding. They relying on visitor support for its continued operation and essential rehabilitation program.
