During the summer of 2014 the El Paso Zoo sent Dr. Vikki Milne to Borneo to help with conservation projects in cooperation with UTEP.
In the picture above Dr. Milne is seen holding a rehabilitated Golden Eagle in the Sierra Blanca area of west Texas as part of the Zoo’s wildlife conservation and rehabilitation efforts. The eagle named Sierra was taken to the zoo in January, 2018 after she was found with a broken bone in her wing and general weakness and dehydration.
El Paso Zoo veterinary staff provided medical care until the eagle healed and could be transferred for further rehabilitation and flight preparation by the Gila Wildlife Rescue in Silver City, New Mexico.
We hope you enjoy reading Dr. Milne's blog post from her memorable trip to Borneo.
