Membership of the Raptor Research Foundation is open to anyone with an interest in raptor research and conservation, whether you are a professional or amateur researcher or an interested observer. Our current membership consists of over 1000 people who reside in over 50 countries on six continents, forming a global network of raptor experts. Our members include the world’s leading raptor specialists, as well as professional scientists, educators, wildlife managers, conservationists, students and amateur raptor enthusiasts.
Simply, RRF is an organization of people from throughout the world who work together using multiple disciplines (science, art, policy, etc.) to improve our knowledge, appreciation, and conservation of raptors. We are inclusive, and invite to our membership those who wish to develop, communicate, and utilize robust science to improve the lives of all species of raptors.
Our subscription fees are modest in comparison to many other ornithological societies and we offer reduced rates for students and for researchers and conservationists in less developed countries. We are a non-profit society so our members’ subscriptions are essential for us to achieve our goals. Membership fees are used primarily to support the publication of the quarterly Journal of Raptor Research.
