After months of Zoom calls, the University of Minnesota’s Raptor Center wants to help keep your next one from getting stale.  

The Raptor Center is offering up its stable of “raptor ambassadors,” featuring eagles, hawks, falcons, vultures and owls, to join the first 15 minutes of your next Zoom meeting.

The program is called “Raptor Zoomies” and can be used in Zoom calls with your employees, co-workers, friends and family.

The University of Minnesota’s Raptor Center currently has a variety of raptors to choose from.
