On 25 May 2013 the first Ridgway's Hawk hatched in the wild in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. This was a major milestone for our Ridgway's Hawk Conservation Project and a huge step forward in the conservation of this species.

The Peregrine Fund's biologists are known for going to work wherever needed to study and conserve endangered raptors, so we didn't think twice when heading to one of the harshest environments on earth - the Arctic Tundra in northern Alaska.

One of the most important components of our Ridgway's Hawk Conservation Project in Dominican Republic is our environmental education program.
