Kenya Bird of Prey Trust
Our mission is to understand, protect and restore raptor populations in Kenya.
We do this through field monitoring, evidence-based raptor management,
community education and capacity building.
Rescue and Rehabilitation
How can we expect to save a species if we cannot save an individual? At the Kenya Bird of Prey Trust, we believe that caring for injured or sick raptors is ethical and a valuable conservation tool. We have developed a network of centres and holding facilities across Kenya dedicated to caring for raptors in need.
Monitoring and Research
Good science guides effective conservation work. Our monitoring and research efforts are focused on using the latest methods and technologies to improve our understanding of species’ populations and ecology to directly inform their conservation. We believe in collaboration, and foster diverse partnerships to ensure the success of our monitoring and research work. We strive to share our work in peer-reviewed journals, in popular magazines, and on our website and social media platforms.
Education and Capacity Building
We believe that raptor populations in Kenya can only thrive if people care about raptors. Therefore, we place great emphasis on raising awareness of raptors amongst all Kenyans. We utilise various education methods to reach as wide an audience as possible. We also work with partners to build their capacity to manage and understand raptors.
Kenya's threatened birds of prey require a helping hand in today's ever-changing and increasingly human dominated world. We focus on national raptor conservation related issues such as powerlines, poisoning, and persecution. We design practical solutions to contribute to their conservation and engage in the mitigation of human-caused raptor mortality.
We identify areas of significant raptor importance and work tirelessly to ensure that these landscapes are protected in perpetuity.
