Shasta, Red-Tailed Hawk

Will you help this Majestic Bird?

“Shasta”, a Red-Tailed Hawk, was the victim of an illegal shooting in the Shasta Mountain Range of California. Because her wing required partial amputation she can never be returned to the wild. Shasta found safe haven with us at Wildlife Experience and has since educated thousands of people about her majestic species and the laws that protect them.

Connecting People to Our Natural World

Wildlife Experience is a CA 501 (c) (3) wildlife conservation organization dedicated to wildlife & environmental conservation through community education and provides quality, life long care for the non-releasable animals in our charge.

We achieve our educational goals by offering CA Life & Physical Science Standard based Outreach Programming in Ventura, Santa Barbara and Los Angeles County schools and participate in Special Environmental and Community Events.

Our programs offer environments for people to see the animals they are learning about. This direct connection has an increase in cognitive learning ability and an increase in affective learning, which fosters a deeper appreciation for wildlife and the environment. Since 2000 we are proud to have served over 300,000 people with wildlife education programming in Southern California! Learn more.

Nature Programs

Presenting live native and exotic animal species allows us to create a diverse program topic base for any event. Whether a School, Library, Camp, Community Event or any other affair, our Nature Programs are created to excite people about the natural world around them and encourage responsible action concerning wildlife and the environment.

Wildlife Experience is embarking on our 10th year of conservation in Uganda Africa. Our goals are to help species in a threatened or endangered state in the wild while protecting the habitats in which they live.

Wildlife Experience achieves this in the following ways:

1) Research and Action Plan Development
2) Developing alternative methods of sustainability for local families
3) Education Programs for local schools in the district
4) Regional Radio Programming that spans throughout the local communities adjacent to fragmented forests
