“The Rehabilitation Center for Birds of Pray” is located at the Institute for Biological Research “Siniša Stanković” in Belgrade. It was opened on the 24. of April 2004. and was constructed as a donation of “Energoprojekt Engineering”, primarily through the efforts of Nikola Breko and Slobodan Jovanović Ćobe. Surface area is 16 square meters and consists of two rooms, open and closed. As a limited capacity, it is primarily for endangered species of birds of prey.
In the Center every year a large number of birds of prey are arriving, especially during the spring and summer, when many young birds come out from the nests and are brought by citizens. Young individuals go through reception, review and, if they are healthy, ring and when they gain enough – release. The most common types that come to the Center are: Coomon kestrels, owls, buzzards, hawks, and sometimes larger species such as white-tailed eagle, imperial eagle…

Besides the Palić Wild Animal Center, this Center is the almost only shelter in Serbia of this type. But, Republic of Serbia does not fund the Center and its functionality depends on the good will and support of citizens, businessmen and companies! Since the Center exists for almost 15 years, significant repairs are needed, which again requires funding.
