Review for Raptor Resource Project, Decorah, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I found this eagle camera in 2011 when RRP switched to Ustream. The picture and sound quality were so advanced in comparison to other eagle sites it blew me away. The chat room was focused on sharing information about eagles with civility and helping each other understand what we were seeing.

RRP has as one of it's primary goals educating students about all raptors. The word “students” encompasses all ages from 2 year olds who sit on grandma/granpa's laps and learn at the most rudimentary level to 93 year olds who gather in community rooms to complete their life long journey of watching nature, now on screen rather than hiking through woods. I know this is life changing for all; it certainly has changed my life for the better and not just from the knowledge gained about the natural, wild world but in making me a better person.

RRP also has a goal of raptors first. Their initial thought in doing anything is how can we gain information in the least intrusive way possible. They also have the well being of the eagles, falcons, and turkey vultures they monitor in the forefront of their thoughts at all times.

Just as eagles are frugal (value for expenditure), RRP has proven time and time again that donations are used in the wisest ways possible.
