Exploring Nebraska

The Grand Dame of Raptor Rehab

A window into the world of Betsy Finch, the “grand dame of raptor recovery” in Nebraska.  We visit the nonprofit Raptor Conservation Alliance, located on Finch’s acreage in Elmwood, where injured raptors are rehabilitated before being returned to the wild. We also visit Fontenelle Forest, where some of the rehabilitated raptors who can no longer survive in the wild reside.
