About the Instructor:
Prior to founding Nature’s Echo, Tauna Pierce, Stacey Truitt and Sara Rorie worked together at The Raptor Center at Auburn University. Stacey Truitt also provided biological field work for HawkWatch International and Tauna Pierce went on to work with the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey in Orlando, Fl. The three joined forces again in 2004 to develop the in-house free flighted bird of prey show at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, GA.
The three founded Nature’s Echo in 2010. Together they have nearly 35 years of experience in the fields of biology, animal care, biomedicine, wildlife rehabilitation and conservation education. Although Birds of Prey remain the primary focus of the group’s outreach and environmental education efforts, they share a common passion for all of the living things with whom we share the Earth.
