About Us

Guidestar Bronze BadgeFounded in 1989 by the late Bob Anderson, the non-profit Raptor Resource Project works to ensure the health and vitality of bird of prey populations. We build and maintain nest sites, provide training in nest site creation and management, and develop innovations in nest site management and viewing that bring people closer to the natural world. We are dedicated to conserving birds of prey, educating people around the world about raptors and their habitats, and transforming knowledge and passion into action by:

  • Asking questions
  • Opening windows to the unseen, vivid life around us
  • Uncovering the mysteries of raptor migration
  • Building and connecting communities that value nature

As a nonprofit environmental organization, we depend on donors, research, and our other programs for our entire budget. Your support will result in direct impacts and improvements for birds of prey.
