Tasmanian Raptors

I have had the privilege of photographing many Tasmanian raptors over the past few years through my involvement with the Raptor and Wildlife Refuge of Tasmania in southern Tasmania. The Refuge provides a sanctuary for many injured raptors and does a fine job rehabilitating them with the aim of releasing mended birds back to the wild. Here is a selection of images taken over the past few years. I am very proud to be contributing many images such as these to the refuge’s fundraising calendar every year, but of course I shoot many more photos than can fit in a 12 month calendar! So all of the photos below are images that have not been shared before. Participants in this weekend’s “Raptor Reflections” workshop will be treated to a special experience meeting these birds up close.
