OUR MISSION: To elevate youth and the community to become effective advocates and ethical stewards of themselves, wildlife, habitats and the environment.



Talking Talons Youth Leadership succeeds at it’s Mission because of a dedicated group of staff members, board members and volunteers.


We reach out continually to strengthen our partnership network and connections with supporters who share in our vision of healing the planet by transforming generations of leaders through nature.


We help to support other non-profit programs in Central New Mexico that serve youth through Environmental Education, Environmental Leadership Training and/or Animal Rehabilitation Projects and Education.
