Prevent the loss of nesting sites for the Critically Endangered species of raptors in Masai Mara Key Biodiversity Area, Kenya. Map known and newly discovered raptor nests to guide future development away from sensitive areas, and produce a Masai Mara Raptor Management and Conservation Action Plan, which will be presented to the local government and authorities to enhance safeguard measures. Publish a peer-reviewed paper and share data with other citizen science projects, including the African Raptor Data Bank and Kenya Bird Map.

Strategic Direction: 2 Improve the protection and management of the KBA network throughout the hotspot.
