Please join HawkWatch International for an opportunity to meet and learn about our newest Raptor Ambassador.

February 5, 2019
6 - 8 p.m.
HawkWatch International
2240 South 900 East
Salt Lake City, UT

Chrys is an adult male Golden Eagle and comes to HawkWatch International after being hit by a car, the most common injury among raptors. After spending time in a wildlife rehabilitation center, Chrys was deemed non-releasable and would spend his life under human care. He'll join our other amazing Raptor Ambassadors in an effort to teach our community about conservation and the threats birds of prey face in the wild.

We hope to see you on February 5!

Why We Care

  • We should bill the lake for what it is—a place of grandeur and solitude, which nourishes our thoughts and heightens our sensitivity to nature. Seen in that light, the brine flies become a fascinating curiosity more than an annoyance. The Great Salt Lake offers a wilderness experience, not a beach party, and no amount of promotion and development will change that.
