Sipping for Sakers – Join the Effort to Save Saker Falcons

Dear Friends,

Today, in collaboration with the conservation bloggers at Bird Freakwe have launched “Sipping for Sakers” an awareness-building and fundraising effort. 

For the month of October we are highlighting the important work of biologist Rick Harness and colleagues who are on a mission to save the endangered Saker Falcon in Mongolia. Rick and Co. have identified that powerline electrocutions are one of the major threats to these amazing hunters. The Saker Falcon’s population  is less than 10,000 so action needs to be taken to retrofit and reconfigure the power poles. 

Supporting Rick’s Save the Saker Project in Mongolia: either by purchasing Burning Hawk Wines (note, we have released our new selection  of wines), spreading the word about this effort to your friends,  or making a direct contribution to Rick’s project via the Rocky Mountain Raptor Program. Everything you need to know can be read at Bird Freak.

A little over a year ago we started Burning Hawk Wines after a red-tailed hawk was electrocuted in Windsor, California and started a fire in a grape vineyard. And now, thanks to your participation and purchases this cause-focused business has the ability to make a difference whereever threats to birds exist, including the  Mongolian Steppe.

Thank you.
