Last Chance Forever provides educational programming that seeks to inspire an interest in and
an awareness of the natural world which we share with all living things. Their particular focus
on birds of prey highlights the birds' importance as part of nature's checks and balances as well as an important indicator species for the future quality of the environment we all live in.
Last Chance Forever, founded in 1978 by Master Falconer and Veterinary Technician John
Karger, is a nonprofit, tax exempt organization dedicated to the rehabilitation of sick, injured,
and orphaned birds of prey, scientific investigation, and just as importantly, the education
of the public. Each year the project accepts between 150-300 birds into the facility for care. An
average of 65-80% of all cases are successfully returned to nature. Whenever possible, birds that are deemed non-releasable
and not suffering, are held to be placed in propagation projects, natural science centers for educational purposes, or humane research projects.
