Abstract: The Neotropical region is renowned for its avian diversity and birds of prey are not an exception. This region hosts one of the greatest species richness of raptors and includes in this list some of the most singular and flagship representatives, such as the Andean condor and the harpy eagle. Many of the raptor species ranging in this region are also listed as Threatened and Endangered by the UICN. Conversion and destruction of natural habitats, active persecution, poisoning and other human related causes are among the threats that these species face in this region. Here we examine and review raptor diversity and conservation in the Neotropics pointing gaps and future research needed aiming to preserve their populations.
