Information about the Network

Russian Raptor Research and Conservation Network was founded in 2011 by a group of activists of raptors and owls research and conservation (Network creation history >>>) to unite avian predators lovers to study and protect them.

Network Mission
The essence of mission: avian predators belong to a more or less vulnerable group which needs special human attention in conditions of developing economic activity. Human activity had already led to a significant shrinking of many predator species’ natural habitat and to almost full extinction of some species. The Network unites people who are ready to protect interests of this group in the face of civilization.
Moreover, the widening of environmental worldview among the Earth population has positive effect on planet’s climate in global and local scales.

I want to join the Network!Achieving the Network’s aims and objectives, delivering its missions in Russia and neighboring countries is possible with the expansion of our network, drawing raptors and owls’ lovers to it, both professional ornithologists and amateurs, birdwatchers, by encouraging friendship and working relationships between them.

At this moment the Network is actively developing and you can take part in it by becoming its full member.

The Network is open for everyone who shares its aims and objectives and starts sharing their experience, information and photos on the website – that is taking part in the Network’s projects or carrying out own activity within the Network, or helping it in any other way (financial support, helping in production of issues or website management). Become a Network member >>>.

At the end of each year all members of the Network must post a brief report of their work for the year. Inactive Network members will be automatically deleted by administration.

Network members can fill the Network’s databases (Birds of prey and owls observation database, ringing database, nestboxes monitoring program database et all.) and use this information. For any guest users of the website all information from databases except exact coordinates are open. Network members can receive exact points’ coordinates by contacting moderator of the corresponding database. All data in databases belong to authors, when using the information for scientific purposes (researches, articles, reports and so on) attribution to authors of the source material and a link to the Network is required. Terms and conditions of using Russian Raptor Research and Conservation Network databases >>>
