Birds 101 - Low Income

April 15th & 16th
Class will be held 9:30AM - 6PM each day.


These spots are reserved for students of lower income who seek to learn taxidermy for education or professional aspiration but need that extra bit of help in their budget to do so. Prey Taxidermy strives to create inclusion and diversity in taxidermy and feels that creating a lower-cost structure for certain students may help achieve that.


The Eligibility Requirements & Rules:

1) Please do not sign up for these spots if you just want to try taxidermy for fun. These spots are for those aspiring to be in the sciences, museum work, or in taxidermy professionally one day.

2) Do not give it as a gift to someone else. Unless this is for your child and you are a parent, anyone signed up under these spots not under their own name will not be permitted.

3) Parents of children under 21: We want to accommodate you with these spots unless you are a family of means. Only one per family member.

4) This is based on the honor system. Los Angeles County defines low income as 'an individual makes less than $47,520 per year or if a family of four earns wages less than $97,200 per year'. This means after taxes you would bring home around $3,000 monthly as an individual or as a family of 4 around $6,500 monthly in Los Angeles. (If you do not live in LA county, please use your local low-income calculator to determine if you are low-income. Be honest.

5) If you are flying in from out of state or out of the country, you may factor in travel accommodation costs to your low-income status within reason. Again, be a good person. Don't just take a low-income spot because it offsets your travel cost; ask yourself if you really truly need to. 

6) Please keep your status as a low-income student private from other students. We will keep it anonymous and my staff will not know which students are which.

We are a small individually female-owned business with a very high overhead, so our general pricing reflects that. However, by creating these 2 more affordable spots per class we can help diversify the taxidermy community while still making ends meet.

Again, this is based on the honor system and is a pilot program. Let's try to make it a success so that we can keep doing it.
