Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos)
In June of 2002, a young of the year Golden Eagle was found in a drainage ditch in Weld County. This young bird had a rough start to life: she was diagnosed with curvature of the spine (scoliosis) and degenerative joint disease in the right elbow. She was unable to fly, and at her young age was deemed unable to survive in the wild. It was then her second chance at life began as an Educational Ambassador.
Although she would have perished in the wild, she has thrived as an Ambassador for her species at RMRP. She grew strong (and very, very big) in the loving care of RMRP. This gorgeous female Golden Eagle has an attitude to bring a smile to everyone who meets her. She is demanding and fierce, as well as charming to the crowds of people that adore her.
She may have not lived a life in the wild, but she brings the love of the wild to every human she meets.
