Hawks Aloft 20th Anniversary Celebration
We had our humble beginnings in Gail’s kitchen back in February of 1994. We’ve come a long way from there, expanding in all aspects of our organization—from research areas to school programs and partner corporations to wildlife rehabilitators. Then, as now, Hawks Aloft could not have done it without your support. Thank you!
We employ a team of dedicated professionals that are motivated to be part of a conservation organization that makes a difference in New Mexico and the southwest. Our project managers are experts in their field and are supported by a team of qualified and experienced field assistants and administrative personnel. The team at Hawks Aloft includes:
- Avian and wildlife biologists
- Education specialists
- GIS technicians
- Wildlife Rehabilitators

We work in partnership with our clients to provide a flexible and tailored service.
