HawkWatch International’s mission is to conserve the environment through education, long-term monitoring, and scientific research on raptors as indicators of ecosystem health.
For millennia, countless cultures have revered birds of prey as representatives of strength, freedom, and the power of nature. Today, however, their ability to survive is being threatened ever more. As top predators, these hawks, eagles, falcons, and other raptors play an essential indicator role in their communities: if they go, we all go. HawkWatch International works to ensure birds of prey are able to survive and thrive in the natural world, in order to maintain an environment that sustains human and wild animals alike.
