Hawkwatch International, Inc.
April 14, 2010

Years ago, the local power company worked with Hawkwatch International to identify which power poles were being most used by raptors, so they could put perch guards where they would prevent the most electrocutions of hawks and owls. I was a volunteer gathering the evidence along certain lines. I learned just how frequently hawks use power poles and just how deadly the lines can be. I liked the partnership idea with the power company. Years later, I know much more about HawkWatch as I am now on the Board. They are clear about their vision, and they manage their resources well.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand its role in raptor conservation based on sound science, and provide that information to decision-makers and interested citizens alike.
