How We Operate

NMWC is a non-profit organization, operating through the generosity of private and corporate donors and with the support of a few foundations and granting entities. NMWC receives limited funding from the State of New Mexico (typically a grant that makes up no more than 2% of our budget). NMWC employs a small staff of nine full and part-time employees. It would not function without the help of the 75+ volunteers who regularly dedicate their time, talent and resources to us. In addition to the on-site volunteers who do everything from education programs for schools to cleaning wildlife mews to feeding education animals, we have a network of transporters who bring animals to us from every corner of the state. It takes more than a village, it takes the entire state of New Mexico to keep wildlife and wild habitats part of the cultural mix.
