Mission: To teach anyone and everyone about the importance of birds of prey. Nature's Educators strive to get audiences excited to learn about wildlife.
Results: Nature's Educators has grown from 1 person and 2 birds in 2008 to currently having 40+ people, 23 birds, 21 snakes and some other ambassadors. We do hundreds of programs and events each year and reach thousands of people. We are working towards a facility that will be open to the public so people can come and see our amazing ambassadors.
Target demographics: wildlife
Programs: school programs, events, birthday parties, festivals, country clubs, and more. We teach about wildlife from all over the world and their amazing adaptations for survival! We teach how we are impacting animals and what we can do to help.
I cannot say enough about Nature's Educators. Not only do I get to see the effect we have on the public but I also know what the organization has affected my life. Nature's Ed is 100% volunteer operated. Most volunteers have full time jobs and help out because of their passion for wildlife conservation and for their love of raptors. I would say one thing that I love about volunteering with nature's Ed is the look on children’s faces when they first see our ambassadors. For me personally volunteering with Nature’s Ed has been a life changer. This is one of the more meaningful parts of my life. Spreading the word on the importance of Birds of Prey and educating the public has become very fulfilling to me. I am super excited to see Nature’s Educators grow and I am glad I will be here to help!
