BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • One of Sitka's most popular attractions, Alaska Raptor Center is a 17-acre campus where birds of prey are treated and released back into the wild. Each year the Center provides medical treatment for as many as 300 injured bald eagles and other raptors.
  • Birds injured too severely to survive in the wild join the Center's Raptors-in-Residence, giving visitors a chance to observe the incredible creatures. The Raptor Center offers tours May to September and it's within walking distance from downtown Sitka.
  • Interesting fact: The Bald Eagle Protection Act permits fines of $100,000 and five years in prison for killing an eagle or illegally possessing parts—including feathers. Most of the center's wounded birds were injured by humans in one way or another.
