About raptor rescue plett

Raptor Rescue Plettenberg Bay opened in September 2020 taking over the premises and infrastructure and adopting a number of the resident birds from the previous owner, Dennis Robson, from Radical Raptors. Mark Robson gained his experience whilst working for his brother and his passion shines through in his most enjoyable and educational guided tours and through his dedication toward the birds in his care. Mark and his partner, Laura Fotheringham, now run the centre and together continue the conservation work that the centre has become so well known for over the the years of its operation at the Heath Complex.
