Angel Muela

Angel Muela has been working with raptors for the best part of his life. He began working in wildlife rehabilitation centers in his native Spain when he was 15 years old and when he moved to the U.S. to begin college, he gave presentations to local school groups with a live raptor on his fist.

While still in university, Angel began spending his summers in Panama working on a Harpy Eagle captive breeding and release project. Four years later, after graduating with a degree in Wildlife Conservation Biology, he moved down to Panama and for the past eleven years he has worked in Latin America with many different species including Harpy Eagles, Orange-breasted Falcons, and Ornate Hawk-Eagles.

As a young boy growing up in the outskirts of Madrid, Angel spent much of his youth in the open fields around his house watching birds enthusiastically. The captivating image of a bird on the hunt – drew Angel deeper into the world of raptors. He has since used the skills he learned in falconry to successfully release captive-bred and rehabilitated raptors back into the wild.

Through Whitehawk, Angel hopes to share his love of raptors with anyone who will listen and hopes to continue working toward the conservation of all birds around the globe.
