Kane Area Rehabilitation and Education (K.A.R.E.) is a federal- and state-licensed wildlife rehabilitation organization. This nonprofit group is run entirely by volunteers and relies entirely on donations. K.A.R.E. rehabilitates and releases into the wild a large number of animals, including deer, raccoons, opossums, foxes and coyotes, as well as every type of raptor found in northern Illinois.

Daniel Compton has been rehabilitating birds of prey for K.A.R.E. for more than 12 years. As a volunteer, he has rehabilitated and then released hundreds of indigenous birds, including red-tailed hawks, great horned owls, barred owls, screech owls, peregrine falcons, and kestrels. As part of his licensing to keep and handle federally protected birds of prey, Mr. Compton, in conjunction with K.A.R.E., provides educational programs free of charge to schools, clubs and civic organizations.
