Traveling from Hillsborough County, Rick Foley gave a presentation for the visitors at Chinsegut Nature Conservation Center on July 11, 2015. His presentation was about Birds of Prey also known as Raptors. Foley has been involved with Falconry since 2009 and after two years of training in rehabilitation, he is now certified as a rehabilitator. “My love of falconry is what inspired my rehabilitation. I became aware of the birds that were out there that needed help and I had the training and know-how to take care of them [raptors]” Foley said.
