Coastal Raptors is concerned about the long-term health and viability of raptors found along coastlines, given the vulnerabilities of raptors in these environments. The risks are many, and include exposure to wind turbines, oil spills, human disturbance (e.g., being shot, vehicle collision), and severe storms.

Coastal Raptors is concerned about the lack of information for the general public, scientists, land managers, and policy makers on raptors in coastal environments.

OUR MISSION is to further research and education programs leading to the conservation of coastal raptors.

Coastal Raptors is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization supported by donations, program fees and grants. Your support is needed for the on-going research and monitoring program and for educational outreach. All contributions to Coastal Raptors are U.S. tax-deductible (Tax ID number available upon request; contact Dan Varland at 360-591-5959). All donors receive a letter of thanks acknowledging their gift and a receipt. Donors are identified in the annual newsletter (the amount given is not shared).
