Wildlife West Nature Park is New Mexico's premier facility and attraction dedicated to native wildlife and ecology. Located just minutes east of Albuquerque in Edgewood, New Mexico, the Park encompasses 122 acres of land, much of which has remained undisturbed throughout the development of the facility. Many of our residents occupy spacious enclosures designed to accommodate their natural behaviors. All of our animals are non-releasable, either due to injury or some other factor that makes life in the wild impossible for them. Our zoo is privileged to have a large, well trained staff of volunteers and members of the New Mexico Youth Conservation Corps who support our efforts while experiencing the satisfaction of contributing to a worthy and worthwhile cause. The park has developed a broad-based educational program, and has become a regional center for concerts, festivals, and other events.

Sometimes, it’s good to take a soak! Even wolves like to cool off on a hot day.

Did you know: Kestrels are most easily distinguished by their typical hunting behaviour which is to hover at a height of around 10–20 metres (33–66 ft) over open country and swoop down on prey, usually small mammals, lizards or large insects.
