Marki is Executive Director of the Saratoga Springs based Wildlife Institute of Eastern New York, an IRS 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
The program’s goal is to increase environmental awareness by introducing people to some of the most exotic species of animals indigenous to their very own ecosystem: raptors, also known as birds of prey. Raptors include owls, hawks, eagles, and falcons. All birds of prey have remarkable adaptations and skills for survival in the wild. Marki will bring live birds of prey for people to see up close. She will also discuss the adaptations and behaviors of these birds, conservation issues that impact them, and wildlife rehabilitation. She’ll talk about what people should do if they find injured or orphaned wildlife.
Marki’s birds were either born in captivity or were injured, rescued and rehabilitated, but unable to return to the wild. She uses them for educational programs in many settings such as schools, senior centers, libraries and church groups.
