Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and heavy metals are an important indicator of environmental quality and ecosystem health.  Metal detections and trends provide valuable insight in to environmental processes and changes in ecosystem health and function. Although extensively analyzed in various media in the past, it is important to continuously evaluate changes in indicator chemicals overtime to assess the impacts of potentially toxic chemicals and address ongoing issues of chemical release. Raptor species are of particular interest as apex predators and likely to exhibit the most noticeable changes in chemical loads over time due to bioaccumulation and biomagnification processes.  In this project, we analyze and track long-term POP and heavy metal trends in various raptor species using complimentary analytical techniques.
