Rocky Mountain Wildlife Alliance evolved out of a clear need. We noticed critical components missing in the field. We observed that there was very little camaraderie or collaboration among the broad spectrum of wildlife professionals. In addition, there was no easy, affordable, local way to participate in continuing education on a regular basis. It is this need that we are passionate about. By drawing on our inherent unconditional love of animals, and our drive to empower and support professionals, we developed the Rocky Mountain Wildlife Alliance.
After nearly two decades devoted to providing care to both pets and wildlife, Emily M. Davenport founded the Rocky Mountain Wildlife Alliance in 2017. She spent eight years working as a veterinary technician for a community animal hospital, and developed and opporated a successful pet care company for 11 years. For over six years, Emily worked in several capacities with the Birds of Prey Foundation, including as Assistant Director and ICU Manager.
Emily currently serves as President of the Board of Directors for Nature’s Educators and Vice President of the Board of Directors for The Echo Wildlife. As a lifelong student of nature and biology, she seeks to unify wildlife professionals in the Rocky Mountain region through community and collaboration.
Emily earned her BFA in Illustration from the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design, where her focus was on veterinary and medical illustration. A published illustrator and frequent presenter on raptors and rehabilitation, Emily lives in Broomfield, CO, with her husband and their two dogs.
