The Conanicut Island Raptor Project, founded in 2005, is dedicated to the preservation, study and enjoyment of Jamestown's birds of prey. It is CIRP's belief that an informed community that values its wildlife will act responsibly to protect wild animals and the habitat on which they depend for survival.
