Mission Statement

The mission of the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory is to study migrating birds of prey along the Pacific coast and to promote public awareness of the state of raptor populations.

Description


The Golden Gate Raptor Observatory (GGRO) was formed in the early 1980s to track the Golden Gate migration, an annual flight of tens of thousands of hawks, eagles, falcons, and vultures--birds collectively called "raptors." The GGRO is three staff members and more than 250 community volunteers, all dedicated to studying the autumn raptor migration. The GGRO's guiding philosophy is that public involvement is a critical, yet often ignored component of long-term wildlife conservation. Be a part of citizen science in action--volunteer with the GGRO! The GGRO is a program of the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy in cooperation with the National Park Service.
