Raptor Propagation permits authorize captive breeding and sale of raptors.
- All captive bred raptors must be banded with a numbered seamless band we provide. To request bands, submit a Band Order Form
- Hybrids are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA). Raptors that are part MBTA or two species MBTA are protected under MBTA and require a permit to possess.
- Bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) or golden eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) cannot be propagated.
