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 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.
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.
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.
