HWI’s new SURE Program (Studies in Urban Raptor Ecology) aims to better understand how raptors adapt to, and utilize, the fastest growing habitat type on the planet—the built environment. Which birds of prey find successful strategies to adapt to new challenges, and which species struggle?
Join us to learn about our plans for SURE and to launch the program’s raptor community survey component!

Join HWI, and other nonprofits and businesses whose missions include an active concern for the Salt Lake Valley’s air quality, for a day of information-sharing. Meet our anticipated 2,000 attendees; share your solutions-based ideas and products, both high-tech and low; offer tools to help us, in the meantime, cope with horrid air quality and create an all-ages community of citizens who care. Enjoy booths, children’s activities, skill-sharing, workshops, and more...
Please join HawkWatch International for an opportunity to meet and learn about our newest Raptor Ambassador, Chrys!
Chrys is an adult male Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos, see what we did there?) and comes to HawkWatch International after being hit by a car, the most common injury among raptors. After spending time in a wildlife rehabilitation center, Chrys was deemed non-releasable and would spend his life under human care. He'll join our other amazing Raptor Ambassadors in an effort to teach our community about conservation and the threats birds of prey face in the wild.
Stop by to meet Chrys and learn a bit about Golden Eagles. We hope to see you on February 5!
The Utah Division of Wlidlife Resources will hold the annual, and always popular, Bald Eagle Day at Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area on Saturday, February 9, 2019. Enjoy a day of Bald Eagles (and the many other raptors that ply Farmington Bay) and take advantage of the HWI experts who will be happy to help with your raptor ID challenges!
