Professional Services

HawkWatch International offers professional services to agencies, industry, and the general public seeking outstanding raptor and avian expertise. In an increasingly complex world, our science-based, non-advocacy organization recognizes the need for responsible and well-planned development. Our organization possesses the tools and resources to address a wide range of raptor-related project needs. All profits garnered through our professional services are used to support our raptor conservation and education programs.

HWI’s five conservation science staff all have advanced degrees (2 PhDs, 2 MSs, 1 BS) and boast over 40 collective years of raptor and general avian biology and ecology experience. We also have access to a large pool of skilled field technicians trained in raptor identification and observation.
