Symposium: The Role of Banding in Raptor Conservation: Past, Present, and Future
Friday, September 24, 2010
8:00 am – 5:00 pm

Banding raptors, what have we learned and where are we going?

This full-day symposium will be held as part of the 2010 Raptor Research Foundation meeting in Fort Collins, Colorado. The symposium will occur on Friday 24 September, the RRF meeting occurs on 22-26 September. The symposium is being organized by Keith L. Bildstein (Hawk Mountain Sanctuary) and Bruce G. Peterjohn (USGS Bird Banding Lab).

The purpose of the full-day symposium is to bring together raptor-banders and raptor-tracking specialists to:

  1. Summarize what banding has taught us about raptor movements, longevity, and mortality factors.

  2. Compare that knowledge with information derived from newer tracking techniques.

  3. Access the likely role of banding in our field in the future.

Speakers who have accepted our invitation to participate include:

  • Bruce Peterjohn (USGS Bird Banding Lab)

  • Keith Bildstein, Chris Farmer and Laurie Goodrich (Hawk Mountain Sanctuary)

  • Olin Allen (Cape May Raptor Banding Project)

  • Jeff Smith (HawkWatch International)

  • Libby Mjoica and Brian Watts (The College of William and Mary)
