our impact

It’s more urgent than ever to inspire, teach, and connect with people of all ages, in every corner of the globe. In addition to creating economic benefits for people who share a landscape with birds of prey, we also have the audacious goal of establishing a raptor biologist in every country. This is how we'll do it.
