U of M Moment: Raptor Center seeks to save rare Galapagos Hawk

October 28, 2010

Julia Ponder, director of the U of M’s Raptor Center, will be traveling to the Galapagos Islands in November on an important mission – to preserve the rare Galapagos Hawk while the Ecuadorian government eradicates non-native rats that have been ravaging biodiversity on the archipelago.

Ponder will assist with the initial capture and care of the hawks, keeping them safe until they can be returned to the wild.
