The mission of HawkWatch International is to conserve our environment through education, long-term monitoring, and scientific research on raptors as indicators of ecosystem health.

About Us

Since 1986, HawkWatch International has monitored and researched raptors across the Western United States. The data inform local, state, and federal conservation actions across North America and inspire students to learn more about math and science. Combined with a team of non-releasable Raptor Ambassadors, we work to inspire the public to help us conserve raptors and our shared environment.
