The Raptor Center Career Awareness Program - All Ages
The Raptor Center Career Awareness program provides a unique and different twist to learning about environmental and veterinary careers - raptors! Using live raptors such as hawks, owls, and falcons, our education specialists talk about careers in related fields, such as environmental studies, wildlife management and conservation, environmental education, and more. Our connection to the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine provides us with a unique ability to speak about careers in animal science and veterinary medicine. We cover basic career information such as educational requirements, exciting career opportunities, and their personal experience that lead them to working with raptors.
