Cape May Raptor Banding Project
Raptor banders have been operating at Cape May, New Jersey since 1967. The group became incorporated in 1999 as Cape May Raptor Banding Project, Inc. (CMRBP), a 501c3 non-profit organization. As of 2015, CMRBP has captured and banded over 146,000 raptors of 16 different species during fall migration, making CMRBP the largest raptor banding project in North America and one of the largest projects in the world. Our goal is to conduct long-term monitoring of the status and trends of migrating raptors and to analyze and disseminate this information.
