The Wildlife Center has cared for more than 25,000 of these animals since 1986 and continues to rehabilitate 1,400 mammals, raptors, songbirds and reptiles each year.
It is New Mexico's only wildlife hospital, and is open to the public for tours on a seasonal schedule, and offer educational programs by arrangement.
The Center is the only rehabilitation center in New Mexico permitted by the federal government and state of New Mexico to rehabilitate large mammals, such as the New Mexico black bear, endangered species and the eagle, our national bird.
Twenty-five educational birds and mammals reside at the Center and are the center piece of over 120 educational programs and over 400 public tours each year at the Center and throughout northern New Mexico. Primary funding comes to The Center from individual donors and private foundations. The Center receives no regular funding from the state or federal government.
