Scout the Golden Eagle
Scout joined the Southwest Wildlife Foundation of Utah in 2016 when he was approximately 3 years old. Scout was a rescue animal. A rancher in Wyoming was complaining that an eagle was a threat to his livestock. Martin traveled to rescue him before he got shot.
Since 2016, Scout has been both a falconry bird and an educational bird. He goes with Martin to countless educational presentations and also gets to fly free and hunt and be a wild Golden Eagle.
Since age twelve, with a bird on his arm, Martin has captivated audiences sharing his knowledge and experience of his wildlife friends.
At age nineteen, Martin was hired as curator of birds of prey at Busch Gardens, CA. He also worked in the movie and television industry training big cats, elephants, primates, sea mammals and raptors.
Martin is a federally licensed falconer, eagle falconer, wildlife rehabilitator, wildlife propagator, and wildlife and environmental educator.
