Arizona’s Raptor Experience, where our focus is your experience.

At Arizona’s Raptor Experience, our mission is to use hands-on educational opportunities to help foster a connection between people and nature. Our aim is to spark curiosity about wildlife and the environment, and instill the desire to practice conservation of earth’s dwindling natural resources today and everyday.

Our programs feature birds of prey; a group of predatory dinosaurs whose natural history, ecology and charisma capture the attention of visitors and audience members and provide a perfect segue for discussion of a wide variety of conservation issues. Interaction with some amazing raptors will provide enduring memories, and for many a once-in-a-lifetime moment with a meaningful impact.

Your hosts Paul and Anne Schnell carefully arrange your visit (and never double book), creating a private, and above all, one of the most unique wildlife experiences in the U.S. Visitors can select one or more opportunities per visit described in the Programs section.
