Hannah Jones training with Jethro.
When asked why she likes to volunteer at Soarin' Hawk: "I started volunteering at Soarin’ Hawk after I talked to some people at my university who worked here and they were in the wildlife program. I wanted an opportunity to be able to get up close with birds in Fort Wayne for sure because Indiana is really not well known for their wildlife. Soarin’ Hawk provides the opportunity to get hands-on experience with birds as well as be able to educate the public and outreach and show them how cool these birds are. Definitely, when we go to educational programs, I like seeing the public light up when they see the birds of prey and they think that is so cool. You can really tell that they are engaging with the animals and that is so rewarding to me that they are understanding how important these creatures are."
