Our newly designed Raptor Watch T-shirt exhibits four of our focal species: the Hook-billed Kite, Swallow-tailed Kite, Plumbeous Kite, and Double-toothed Kite. This unique kite community has a high research priority because little information is known about their migration and ecology. As a result, BRRI has initiated an annual raptor watch which will systematically document this phenomenon to help guide conservation efforts.
All profits made from our T-shirt campaign will go directly toward our continuing migration research and programs like the 2016 Raptor Certification Program, a program that trains Belizeans in raptor biology and field research.
