HAWKE Inc., a professional 501 3 not for profit private facility started in 1987, cares for owls and hawks and other birds, but has special facilities for difficult and endangered species with trained professionals to care for them around the clock. Extreme species such as eagles, falcons, bobcats, and river otters and more need 24-hour care and very few facilities are set up for them . HAWKE’s  goal is to release animals back to the wild, giving them a second chance at life.They also have trained birds of prey and give wildlife environmental programs for schools, groups even private celebrations. Donations and fundraisers are the main support for HAWKE. Melanie Stage, president of HAWKE, reminds the public that the Alligator Farm is much more than a recognized zoo, its natural wild bird breeding sanctuary. There are also many varied educational exhibits with the wildlife. You and your family will enjoy exclusive use of the entire park from 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. The event includes a guided boardwalk tour of the bird rookery where thousands of nesting, wading birds, herons, egrets, endangered wood storks and roseate spoonbills can be viewed and with their young.
