Chrys is an adult male Golden Eagle, and is about 18 years old. After being hit by a car and injuring his left wing, Chrys was brought to a wildlife rehabilitation center. Unfortunately, his wing never fully healed and he was deemed non-releasable and it was decided he would need to spend his life under human care. HWI adopted Chrys in December 2018 and he joined the rest of the Raptor Ambassadors. Chrys is named for "chrysaetos," a reference to the Golden Eagle's scientific name.
