2020 Raptor Study Results are now Online

CATEGORY: Current Events · In the News |
On Aug 20, 2020

On Sept. 2nd, Dan Cooper and Courtney McCammon will be presenting the results from the 2020 Raptor Survey. Covid 19 saw some remarkable occurrences, thanks to fewer people and fewer vehicles on Park roads and surrounding freeways. Just one example; a pair of Peregrine Falcons attempted to breed in Griffith Park for the first time in modern history. Unfortunately, human activity apparently resulted in these raptors abandoning their nest which had newly-hatched chicks.

Biologists Cooper and McCammon will also share insights from this Raptor Study community science project that includes Griffith Park, and much of the surrounding Los Angeles community.

It’s important to RSVP for the presentation, so please take a moment — do it today!
Simply go to UPCOMING EVENTS (Calendar) and click on 2020 Raptor Study Final Results via ZOOM hit “YES”… and done.

The 2020 FINAL REPORT for the Griffith Park Raptor Survey can be viewed HERE.
