Home for Ridgway's Hawk Print
The Ridgway's Hawk is on IUCN's red list with an estimated population of only 300 birds left in the world. Dr. David Anderson is the director at The Peregrine Fund and he is working with other dedicated scientists, staff and volunteers to save these amazing birds with support from Morris Animal Foundation, the global leader in advancing science to help animals live healthier lives.
Ridgway's hawks are now only found in isolated areas including Los Haitises National Park in the Dominican Republic, one of the bird's last strongholds due to habitat loss, human disturbance, and botfly infestation. If you look closely, the beautiful islands in this national park are supporting the nest in my image as a symbol of how important this area is to these amazing birds.
