North American Programs

Supporting Native Species

What started as an organization focused solely on the fall migration of raptors throughout the western U.S. HawkWatch International has expanded our focus exponentially to studying raptors holistically throughout their life cycle. Through scientific discovery and community science, we aim to create a more united environment between the people of North America and the wildlife that inhabit this shared home.
