Award-winning children’s book author. Jennifer Curtis Keats, has just completed her new book entitled Animal Helpers: Raptor Centers. The book focuses on orphaned, sick, or injured raptors that are sent to qualified wildlife rehabilitation centers, how they are cared for, and the treatment they receive. The book also provides young readers with information about the biology of raptors and possible careers in wildlife rehabilitation.

 

Chesapeake Bay Field Office (CBFO) staff provided several images of raptor care, text edits and final proofing. Service interns Christine Carpenter and Audrey Bonk are pictured in the book placing an orphaned osprey chick into a foster nest near Poplar Island, Maryland. This is the second book that Keats has requested CBFO’s participation raptor care, text edits and final proof reading. Animal Helpers: Raptor Centers is expected to become available in the spring of 2014.
