IV Neotropical Raptor Conference

La Fortuna, Costa Rica 10-13 October 2016

The Neotropical Raptor Network, The Peregrine Fund and Fundacion Rapaces de Costa Rica hosted the IV Neotropical Raptor Conference in La Fortuna, Costa Rica from 10-13 October 2016.

Biologists, students, falconers, educators, and conservationists came together to share their latest research results, successes and challenges. The conference also acted as a meeting point to foster discussion and collaboration on solutions to both present and future conservation issues such as habitat destruction, electrocution, human persecution of raptors and climate change.

Apart from 3 days of scientific plenary sessions, and a full day of Raptor Skills Courses, several field trips were offered. One of the most-visited areas of the country, the area is surrounded by national parks, streams, waterfalls and of course, the now dormant Arenal volcano, making it an excellent location for birding, hiking, zip-lining, rafting, and other outdoor activities.

Join us for the upcoming NRN Conference in Boise, Idaho, USA 8-14 October 2021
