Thanks for donating fresh pink salmon

Sound off on the important issues at

The Juneau Raptor Center would like to thank Taku Fisheries for this year's generous donation of fresh pink salmon for our eagles. This donation enables our nonreleasable and rehabilitating eagles to receive the optimum nutrition they need to be healthy birds. We are especially grateful to Eric Norman and Bruce Crowley for their cooperation and assistance - they are real assets for Taku Fisheries.
