About the Author:

Lori Arent is the Clinic Manager for The Raptor Center at the College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Minnesota where she oversees the care and rehabilitation of 750-800 raptors annually. A master falconer, she maintains memberships in several raptor and wildlife associations, and has published numerous papers and works on raptor care and management and avian physiology.

Review:

Designed for persons keeping captive raptors for program or exhibit, this exceptionally complete and helpful reference contains a wealth of essential information for expert and novice alike. Raptors in Captivity - Guidelines for Care and Management thoroughly explores such key topics as housing, diet, selection of appropriate raptors, handling, medical care and permits. Lori Arent, long the chief of raptor rehabilitation at the Raptor Center of the University of Minnesota, focuses her extensive experience and knowledge in a reader friendly way to provide people who keep captive raptors for education purposes with an extraordinary reference and set of guidelines on education raptor care and maintenance. The book also contains detailed and comprehensive tables and drawings, as well as many helpful pictures. Although Raptors in Captivity is not primarily intended to provide guidance for raptor rehabilitators or captive breeders, much of the information in this book should be of much assistance in those areas also. This book is an outstanding source of guidance in maintaining captive raptors, and should be an invaluable tool for every person interested in this area. --Raptor Conservancy of Virginia
