New Mexico Wildlife Center

New Mexico Wildlife Center is a fun place to visit and see and learn about native wildlife. We are open to the public six days a week for informal tours. You can see hawks, eagles, owls, snakes, and bobcats (and more!) up close. Pre-schedule an educational, live animal program for your classroom or community group. 

We also have a wildlife hospital where we care for injured wild animals in hopes of returning them to the wild. While the hospital is not open to the public, we do have a live-feed camera system set up so visitors can see what's going on in the hospital behind-the-scenes between April and October. Of course, if you find an injured or orphaned wild animal, give us a call and we can advise you in bringing it to our hospital.

New Mexico Wildlife Center is a private, non-profit organization whose mission is to connect people and wildlife for an abundant tomorrow. We are supported through individual donations and grants. If you would like to support our mission, please consider donating through our website:
e also operate thanks to the talents and generosity of volunteers. To learn more about volunteering, please contact
