Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in Berks County now has a new tool to track raptors. An antenna to aid raptor monitoring programs was delivered to the International Space Station yesterday. The idea for the antenna started with an international group of scientists, statisticians and movement ecologists who met at Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in February 2009. In addition to monitoring small animals, the observation system will be able to investigate the spread of diseases and may be able to forecast natural disasters.
