Thunder Eagle Wildlife is a Non Profit  Charity 501c3 oganization. We are state and federally permitted by the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries and the Federal Wildlife Service to provide care and treatment of injured, orphaned or displaced wildlife.

Education Programs: We provide an education program to the public based on local owls in Virginia. This includes a live presentation of several common Virginia owls "on glove" ( Eastern Screech Owls, Barred Owl and Great Horned Owl.) The program is suitable for all ages. Please contact us to schedule a program. This year (2016) we will be adding Red Tailed Hawks to our programs!

As the temperature drops this winter, we caution you to avoid buying real fur or fur trim by accident when purchasing winter coats, boots, and accessories, as it's not always easy to tell the difference between real and faux fur! Whether it's obtained from brutal fur farms or painful traps in the wild, there's no such thing as "ethical" fur. It's easy to find fur free winter clothing that's warm and fashionable—and without the cruelty. Visit Born Free website @ for more information. 

Nov 18, 2016: We are so excited! let us know that we had raised enough in donations to get an incubator for our wildlife babies! We will post a photo as soon as it arrives...but in the meantime..PLEASE visit their website and support this wonderful program whose mission is "to get an incubator into the hands of every wildlife rehabber who needs one".

Gold Award~Cynthia Plaugher

October 2016: Congratulations to Cynthia Plaugher on her Gold Award! Cynthia is a member of Girl Scout Troop 263 and has achieved the highest Girl Scout Award by completing a raptor encloser for our Eastern Screech Owls. She was able to collect the materials through donations and finish the enclosure in record time. Who says girls can't use power tools! 

We are SO proud of your accomplishment and extend our heartfelt thanks for choosing us!

Busy nursery! May 2016

Dominion Power came in yesterday 5/11/16 with the first delivery of power poles for us to use to build the large Raptor Enclosure! Workers were so considerate and were able to place the logs right where we needed them! Check out our "What's New" tab.

Check Presentation

Atlantic Coast Pipeline presented Thunder Eagle Wildlife with a check for $10,000.00 towards the building of the large raptor flight enclosure! These folks have been a joy to work with. They are patient educators, accomodating our concerns and maintaining a respect for the conservation of the wildlife and the land which they have to cross. We are looking forward to continuing to our cooperative efforts and growth..restoring nature's balance. 

March 2016: Check out the new van! See 'What's New and Our projects page! Thanks to Tanya and David Hale of HALE'S ELECTRICAL SERVICE and Brian Banner of BRIAN BANNER LETTERING.

Headed home to Hopewell

The mature Bald Eagle that had the wing tip fracture was successfully released this past week, January 2016. This bird had orignally come from the Hopewell area and was rescued in the pouring rain by a Veteran. We had worked with him excercising to be sure he could gain altitude...the last we saw he was                                                                flying over the trees and headed home! 

The Winter Choir Concert was held Thursday January 7, 2016 at the JEJ Moore Middle School and was presented by talented 7th grade students. The performance was dedicated to Thunder Eagle Wildlife and all proceeds from their bake sale that night were being donated to support the continued rescue and rehab of animals in our care. 

We attended with our avian ambassador Barred Owl,Squirt. We are humbled by the school's administrative, student and family support and wish to say a heartfelt 'thank you'. We truly can not accomplish what we do without public donations and continued interest in wildlife care.
