Mark your calendars for this international gathering of top raptor researchers and educators, meeting on the Texas Gulf Coast and one of the top birding locations in the U.S. The event will be held at the Emerald Beach Hotel, right on Corpus Christi Bay and downtown. The host organization is the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute at Texas A&M University – Kingsville, the leaders in providing the science behind wildlife conservation and management in South Texas and related environments. HawkWatch International is also hosting, researching raptors and their habitats since 1986.
The conference features keynote speakers, paper and poster sessions, and workshops. Symposia include several days of Raptors and Energy Development. The Kleberg Institute will host the Friday evening social at their campus in Kingsville, a state-of-the-art facility. HawkWatch will conduct a Sunday field trip to the Hazel Bazemore Park, capital of migrating Broad-winged Hawks and at the peak of hawk migration. Near-by Corpus Christi are the King Ranch, Welder Wildlife Refuge, Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, Smith Point HawkWatch-Gulf Coast Bird Observatory, and a bit further, Matagorda and South Padre Islands. Raptor Meccas!
