Hannah Perry

Environmental Educator

Hannah grew up in the East Mountains and volunteered at Talking Talons back in 2002 at the ripe old age of seven. She primarily volunteered as a reptile caregiver, but occasionally helped prepare diets for other animals as well. She graduated from the University of New Mexico with a B.L.A focusing on Geography and Environmental Studies. Hannah kicked off her experience working outdoors doing a YCC crew with Talking Talons at Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge (VdO NWR) and continued working for VdO NWR for about three years while she was finishing her Bachelor’s degree. She played a number of different roles at VdO NWR but eventually she became the education liaison between there and the Sandia Mountain Natural History Center and also worked as an environmental educator. After she worked as an educator, she spent some time working as a zoo keeper for two and a half years and a wildlife rehabilitator for about a year.

In her free time Hannah enjoys taking care of her pets and garden. She also enjoys reading, hiking, and birding. She looks forward to seeing how Talking Talons will move forward with their new education plans.
