The Raptor Research Foundation (RRF)  Founded in 1966, RRF is a non-profit scientific society formed to accumulate and disseminate scientific information about raptors in order to inform the scientific and lay public about the role of raptors in nature and to promote their conservation.

The RRF membership, which includes nearly 1000 individuals from some 50 countries, consists of academic researchers, government employees, and others interested in birds of prey.

The Journal of Raptor Research is issued quarterly to members and contains the latest research results from raptor studies around the world.


The Rocky Mountain Raptor Program (RMRP)  The RMRP is a raptor rehabilitation and education organization that has worked closely with the scientific community for more than 25 years.  

The RMRP cares for more than 300 injured raptors every year, with the goal of releasing them back into the wild.  About  30 nonreleasable raptors form the core of the RMRP environmental education program, which reaches hundreds of thousands of people in Colorado and southern Wyoming every year. 

The RMRP works closely with Colorado State University’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital to provide medical care for more than 300 injured raptors every year.  The organization cooperates with a variety of research projects through CSU, CDC, and USGS studying such challenges as West Nile Virus. 

After 25 years as part of Colorado State University, we are now a separate nonprofit organization that has recently settled into a new facility on the north edge of Fort Collins..
