The George Miksch Sutton Avian Research Center (Sutton Center) was founded in 1983 with the mission of finding cooperative conservation solutions for birds and the natural world through science and education. The Sutton Center is a private, non-profit organization located near Bartlesville, Oklahoma, and since 1997 has been a part of the Oklahoma Biological Survey in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Oklahoma.
The Sutton Center has become a leader in avian research and conservation and has conducted intensive, conservation-oriented, ecological field research on declining grassland birds, developed and applied techniques for the reintroduction and monitoring of Southern Bald Eagles, managed the successful captive breeding of endangered species and performed bird surveys across the world. In addition, the Sutton Center boasts several educational outreach programs that reach tens of thousands of students and adults each year.
