Climate Change

The Peregrine Fund has begun exploring how climate change might affect birds of prey like the Gyrfalcon and what steps can be taken to confront its effects.

Contaminants of all kinds can have a negative effect on birds of prey. From addressing the impacts of DDT at our founding, to working to stop poisoning of wildlife in Africa, The Peregrine Fund is fighting hard to protect raptors from environmental contaminants. 


Energy Supply

Energy creation and access is important to humanity. The Peregrine Fund is working to ensure that we consider the impacts on birds of prey and other wildlife as we develop new and better technology to help power the planet.

Habitat Loss

The Peregrine Fund is actively involved around the world in efforts to collaborate with communities to protect and restore the landscapes that endangered birds of prey require for food and shelter.

Human Conflict

Whether out of misunderstanding, fear, or competition, humans have a history of shooting birds of prey. We are working to help educate people about the value of raptors to reduce this persecution. 


Invasive Species

Plants and animals that have been introduced to habitats by humans can have a negative impact on the native raptors that inhabit that space. Additionally, as we impact the world around us, some species are becoming overpopulated and affecting the ability of raptors to thrive.


Knowledge Gap

There are more than 500 species of birds of prey on our planet, and many of which have not been studied by science. With these data deficiencies, it is difficult to conserve all species. 


Lead Poisoning

Lead poisoning is a challenge that affects birds of prey all over the world. We are working with a coalition of hunters, anglers, and other conservationists through our North American Non-lead Partnership.
