Pablo Santonja Serrano, Alcoi, Spain, an autumn 2015 graduate of Hawk Mountain Sanctuary's acclaimed International Conservation Science Training Program, has shared a video that captures his three months living and learning in Pennsylvania. During his stay, he resided and trained at the Acopian Center for Conservation Learning, and with four other individuals, learned wildlife monitoring and research techniques, participated in three weekly scientific seminars, interacted with visitors while presenting public programs and interpreting the migration, and conducted both an individual and a group research project. Joining him in the Autumn 2015 class were individuals hailing from Spain, Swaziland, Switzerland, and Zimbabwe. Hawk Mountain has trained more than 400 up-and-coming conservationists from 73 countries on six continents.

Pablo received his M.A. from Polytechnic University of Valencia, Spain, in 2014 with a degree in Environmental Education and has been a volunteer at Hawk Mountain's partner organization “Migres Foundation” at the Strait of Gibraltar. There he helps to monitor the migration of raptors across the strait and also volunteers with the Lindus Project in the Pyrenees, another raptor migration site. Pablo is currently working on several publications and intends to use his training at Hawk Mountain to pursue a career in raptor conservation science.
