The Raptor Working Group (RWG) comprises scientists, conservationists, and other dedicated people who have a passion for protecting ‘raptors’ or bird of prey. Our aims are to raise awareness about the importance of raptors through public education and outreach, to conduct long-term monitoring and research on raptor populations, and to work with key partners to avert human-caused threats to raptors. The group is under the auspices of the Bird Committee of Nature Kenya based at the National Museum.
The RWG brings together experts in the field of raptor ecology and conservation as well as working with dedicated people in diverse fields such as film and print media, video production, photography and environmental education. Ongoing education initiatives include International Vulture Awareness Day that is typically held the first weekend in October. In collaboration with partner organizations, the RWG has initiated raptor road surveys that are conducted in February each year.
