HMANA Education & Conservation Survey
HMANA's Education & Conservation Committee is seeking feedback from HMANA members and site coordinators about a variety of activities we are looking to develop. The survey will take just a few minutes of your time. If you have any additional comments regarding conservation and education issues, please contact the committee chairs, Daena Ford (
) or Gil Randell (
). Thank you for your time.
Which of the following education resources would you like to see HMANA develop? (you may choose more than one)
Lesson plans and visuals that elementary and secondary teachers can use to involve students in scientific study of raptors and migration
On-line opportunities (both educational and reporting) married to site activities (e.g., have recorder/observer /data sheets developed for kids to use when they visit watch sites and opportunities to use the data they collect on-line)
On-line activities for young birders
A young hawk watcher’s club and an opportunity for kids to meet regionally in coordination with regional conferences
A drawing or artwork contest for Hawk Migration Studies, with acknowledgments for participants and prizes
Beginner hawk watching books (designed for kids but maybe also useable by their parents)
Please describe other educational programs or resources you would like to see HMANA develop.
Raptor Population Index (RPI)
RPI is a partnership between HMANA, Bird Studies Canada (
), HawkWatch International (
) and Hawk Mountain Sanctuary (
) in which long-term datasets are analyzed to produce raptor population trend estimates.
Were you familiar with the RPI project prior to this survey?
Have you ever visited www.rpi-project to view biennial trend assessments?
In what way(s) have you used RPI information?
What do you feel is the best way to use RPI as a conservation and education tool?
On what conservation issues should HMANA be leading? (choose all that apply)
Lead and other poisoning
Wind turbine risks
Human disturbance (e.g. falconry, residential developments, logging, etc.)
Building and window collisions
Changing nature of habitats and climate
For Hawk Watch Site Coordinators
The following questions below are geared specifically towards site coordinators. Please answer only if you are a site coordinator.
Name of watch site (optional):
Would your site be willing to participate in a “Junior Hawkwatcher Passport” program, wherein coordinator or other hawk watch official “signs off” on participant’s passport? The idea would be to encourage our youth to visit, and participate, at as many hawkwatch sites as they can.
Do you currently share RPI information with the members of your organization or watch site?
In what way(s) have you used RPI information? (leave blank if you have not used it)
