Petey

Petey joined our education team in 2010. He cannot be released into the wild because he is a human imprint, and therefore does not recognize humans as a threat. Petey demonstrates his imprinting by soliciting food from humans and gathering sticks to make a nest when people are watching. He is trained to fly at some of our shows and will even soar right over the audience.  Petey weighs around 950 grams and has over a 3 ft. wingspan.
