Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma's Grey Snow Eagle House (Bah-Kho Je Xla-Chi) is committed to protect and rehabilitate injured eagles.
The Grey Snow Eagle House (GSEH) provides homes to over 45 bald and golden eagles from throughout the United States; in addition, the facility has released 20 eagles back into the wild from Oklahoma. The facility is able to do this through its possession of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Eagle Rehabilitation and Native American Eagle Aviary permits.
The eagles receiving life-long care at the facility have been injured and are unable to survive in the wild because of these injuries. These eagles come from all over the United States and have received injuries such as being hit by a car, electrocuted, or gunshot. GSEH provides special attention to each individual to ensure that they have a good quality of life while in captivity. These eagles receive bi-annual veterinary exams to ensure each individual is happy and healthy.
The eagles that are here for rehabilitation purposes have been injured in Oklahoma. These birds are usually found by game wardens and good samaritans. These birds go through our rehabilitation program where they receive care in our ICU room where they can rest in peace while they heal. During this time, their progress is monitored by our trained aviary staff. Once an individual is ready to begin being prepped for release, it will be moved to our rehabilitation flight cage. When the eagle is strong enough and hunts effectively, the eagle will be returned to the wild.
