Our Global Conservation Partners

As our mission mandates, Hawk Mountain Sanctuary strives to become a global model for raptor conservation. Some of the raptor species we aim to protect can be seen in our backyards, and some are in remote locations across the world. At least 62 percent of all species of raptors undertake seasonal migration, which can span across multiple countries and continents. Effective conservation of these birds can be achieved through global collaboration, and communication. As a leading raptor conservation organization, Hawk Mountain has established an international presence of collaborative raptor conservation. We continue to expand our global reach, cultivating conservation partnerships with a diverse network of conservation organizations and researchers. 

Our partnerships span across more than 50 regional, national, and global organizations. We work with research associates, graduate students, local conservation education centers, former trainees and interns, and national and international organizations supporting research, education, and conservation. We hope to continue to foster the spirit of collaborative conservation as we expand our global network with new partnerships and opportunities.
