Give to the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory
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.”
Nineteen raptor species travel over the Marin Headlands each year, and your support allows us to keep a pulse on their population changes, monitor their health, and track their movements throughout the Pacific region. Each fall, GGRO volunteers head to Hawk Hill to track, band, and document these migrating raptors.
You can keep up with the Hawk Hill counts at the Daily Hawk Blog or by calling the Hawkwatch Hotline at (415) 426-5295 after 5 pm for a report of the day's activities. Our Hawk Talk and Raptor Release programs will happen every Saturday and Sunday in September and October (except the weekend of the Blue Angels airshow) from noon–2 pm.
You can help support our conservation and public education programs by making a donation today. Your contribution will help preserve California raptor populations and keep Bay Area raptors flying.
