Following the successful recovery of the Peregrine Falcon, our focus shifted to other birds of prey on the U.S. Endangered Species List. For more than 20 years, recovery projects for the California Condor and Aplomado Falcon have involved captive breeding, releases to the wild, and research related to the biology of these species to ensure their continued existence in the wild. Other short-term and long-term projects are conducted as needed when environmental problems are suspected or a species appears to be in decline.
In response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, we partnered with Earthspan in a project to assess the potential for impact of oil exposure on survival and reproduction in migrating Peregrine Falcons. We continue to look for projects that are non-political, solution-oriented, hands-on, and science-based. They must have clear goals that lead to sound conservation strategies that are based on information derived from scientific research combined with a pragmatic philosophy of working with people to craft common sense, innovative solutions.
