The beauty of New Mexico is enhanced by Red-Tailed Hawks soaring in our skies, Great Horned Owls hooting in our parks, and the amazing variety of raptors found in the state.  The Santa Fe Raptor Center has established relationships with schools, colleges,  and the wider community around northern New Mexico. We strive to provide exposure and education about these amazing animals. Our goal is to cooperatively partner on projects that inspire appreciation​, understanding, and respect for the wildlife around us.

Each year, the Santa Fe Raptor Center provides medical treatment to over 75 raptors and other birds. Our goal is to release our patients back into the wild. However, some are injured so severely they could not survive in the wild, even after rehabilitation. These birds typically join our other Educational Ambassadors, traveling throughout the state, providing excitement and education to children and adults through the many programs we

provide to the public.

All our Educational Ambassadors have names in order to help identify them, but they are wild animals and require special handling. Special permits are required and any individual in possession of one of these birds without a permit may face arrest and fines.

Our Educational Ambassadors

Every year our family of educational raptors appear in classrooms and public events throughout Northern New Mexico to share their miraculous stories of rescue and rehabilitation. We educate our audience about the perils that face our various native and migratory wild birds. Would you like to schedule a unique educational program with our birds?
