Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
