The Cornell Raptor Program and its student participants contribute to research endeavors focusing on birds of prey. Our population of captive raptors are used in research projects as appropriate, and all data collected is done non-invasively and does not alter the birds’ normal captive lifestyles.  All research is done following Cornell Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee Guidelines and approval.  Undergraduate students participate in research projects through the Department of Animal Science Undergraduate Research Program and work under the advisement of CRP director, Dr. Heather Huson and the lead project research scientist.  Undergraduate research students must be an established volunteer participant in the Cornell Raptor Program.

If you are a research scientist interested in collaborating with the Cornell Raptor Program, please contact Dr. Heather Huson at
