Do you like people? Do you like to help out? Do you like to also have some quiet time to read or spend time on social media?
The New Mexico Wildlife Center is open to the public Monday through Saturday, from 9 am until 4 pm. We are looking for a person to greet visitors at the front door on Saturdays, accept their tour fee, and give them a friendly and brief orientation to the Center. You might answer questions, or guide a visitor to a staff person for more information. Shifts could be for 4 hours, or all day. There can be down time between visitors, so Greeters are welcome to bring a book to read, spend time on Facebook, or bring a tablet and watch a movie. The most important characteristic is a friendly, outgoing manner with the public who comes to visit. We're happy to teach you what you need to know about the animals and the Center.
About New Mexico Wildlife Center
PO Box 246, Espanola, NM 87532, US
New Mexico Wildlife Center works to conserve and restore native wildlife and their habitats through action-oriented education, promotion of public awareness, strategic partnerships and responsible wildlife rehabilitation.
Located in northern New Mexico, New Mexico Wildlife Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a dual mission of wildlife care and science education. Each year we treat up to 800 animals ranging from hummingbirds to black bears. Our release rate back to the wild is typically 68%. Our facility includes treatment rooms and a surgery suite with anesthesia, and radiology. The rehab area includes over twenty mews for acclimatizing larger birds, plus six flight cages ranging from 20 to 100 feet in length. NMWC has 35+ education/display animals including eagles, bobcats, snakes, owls, hawks, and falcons. Every year over 5,000 children and adults hear our message on wildlife conservation and habitat protection through programs and events featuring our education animals. Additionally, we offer River Classroom to local schools that immerse students in a year-long program of hands-on science in their own back yards.
We'll work with your schedule.
