Nest Monitoring

The most effective method for evaluating raptor population health is long-term nest monitoring. Since 2020, The Mara Raptor Project has been monitoring over 250 large raptor nests in the greater Mara ecosystem and we have hopes to grow our nest monitoring reach to over 750 nests by 2025.
