One of the first emails I received when Burning Hawk took flight was from Allen Fish, Director of the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory (GGRO) who wrote “…I’m thrilled by your vision and commitment to problem solving raptor conservation + energy issues…” This note arrived at a critical time as we had just “left the nest.” Receiving this feedback let us know that our collective efforts are valued by those who have experience and care about these same issues. Allen also shared that as a professional he has seen first hand the problem of raptor electrocution and collision and believes we are on the right track to making a difference. We extend our thanks to Allen and the rest of the GGRO team!
Please take a moment to learn about the GGRO, which has operated in Marin County, California for a quarter century in association with the National Park Service. Each year GGRO’s 300+ volunteers meet up in the Marin Headlands which is one of the most important hawk migratory paths in the Pacific Region!!! Each autumn ~10,000 visitors take part in educational programs and from Hawk Hill focus their binoculars skyward on 19 species and 30,000 raptors in total. If you live or are traveling to the Bay Area this September or October get over to the GGRO! And check out their online Hawk Watch . Contact info: Email the GGRO or call (415) 331-0730
