We are still pinching ourselves--generous donors blew past our $30,000 goal and donated $53,000 in our year-end fundraiser. A 2-for-1 match brought the total raised for our education program to more than $150,000! We are grateful for the loyalty and generosity that enables us to reach the next generation and create a legacy of environmental stewardship.
The money will allow more children to have the unforgettable experience of looking a raptor in the eye during on- and off-site visits with our educators. And more rare birds of prey will survive as people all over the world learn about the vital role these birds play in our environment.

Leading raptor biologists from across North America recently descended on our World Center for Birds of Prey to focus on one species, the colorful and tenacious American Kestrel. In the past, such concern has focused on high profile species like the Peregrine Falcon or Bald Eagle, species that once demanded expansive, collaborative research to restore populations. But this historic first meeting brought together members of our American Kestrel Partnership’s Research Committee to share research, identify goals, and set the path for conservation into the future. We launched the American Kestrel Partnership last year after evidence showed that kestrel populations have been declining across North America for at least half of a century. The Partnership is working to find out why.

The American Taxpayer Relief Act, passed by Congress on January 1, contains a provision that may benefit you if you take action before January 31. The act contains a special IRA charitable rollover provision that enables you to make a gift from your IRA distribution to your favorite charity and enjoy potential tax savings. The bottom line is that you may substantially reduce your 2012 taxes if this qualification applies to you and you make a gift to The Peregrine Fund or other charity before January 31. More.
