We are privileged to have a fine and dedicated group of individuals that make up staff, interns and volunteers. Together, we work to provide REGI patients with the finest care possible. We proudly present the people that are the moving force behind the REGI day-to-day organization.
REGI's Executive Directors
Marge and Don Gibson founded Raptor Education Group, Inc (REGI) in 1990. Marge has worked with wildlife for over 30 years. She began her work with raptors as a field biologist. She has worked with many high profile field projects including the California Condor Recovery Team and the Bald Eagle Capture and Health Assessment Program in Valdez. Alaska following the Valdez Oil Spill where she was team captain. In addition, Marge teaches wildlife rehabilitation internationally. Don is a recently retired M.D. His specialty is Pathology.
In the beginning, Raptor Education Group, Inc was focused on public education programs and supporting field research on avian species. In part due to the remote northern location of the center, it soon became apparent that rehabilitation would be a major part of the work done at the center. While specializing in large raptors and swans, all avian species are accepted for rehabilitation at the center. Since its beginning, thousands of raptors and other avian species have been patients at the wildlife center.

Audrey graduated from UW- Stevens Point with a degree in Wildlife Ecology and a minor in Captive Wildlife. She gained experience in wildlife rehabilitation through internships at the Vermont Institute of Natural Science and the Wisconsin Humane Society and has worked for two years at the SPCA for Monterey County's Wildlife Center in Monterey, CA. She joined the REGI staff in January 2013. Audrey is holding a Rough-legged Hawk.
