Summer Science Series: GP Raptor Study Results

CATEGORY: Current Events · In the News |
On Jul 22, 2019

On Thursday, August 8, Courtney McCammon and Dan Cooper (Cooper Ecological Monitoring, Inc.) will make their final presentation for the third year study of raptors in and around Griffith Park.

Community science participants have provided a wealth of information on raptor nesting habits. Data was collected approximately one to two times per month, including the nesting stage (nest-building, incubation, etc.) and tree type/nest substrate. The rate of success is tracked and data mapped showing raptor nesting trends and patterns. This data-gathering has been extremely helpful to biologists as it represents a specific, comprehensive dataset of raptor habits in the broader Griffith Park community.

Information gathered also helps to protect raptor species affected by human activity (like rodenticide use).
