We believe in Knowledge: Using data helps us better understand raptor numbers, migratory patterns, behaviors, and habitat needs and aid wise conservation decisions.
We believe in Connecting: Inspiring and educating others builds an active community of people to promote the conservation of raptors and a healthy natural environment.
The mission of Mackinac Straits Raptor Watch is to conduct research in the Straits of Mackinac Area on migrating birds of prey, to support their conservation, and to inform and inspire people about them.
