The Peregrine Falcon - Le Faucon Pèlerin

Folks from the Canadian Peregrine Foundation offered us a very informative presentation on one of Ontario's endangered species - the Peregrine Falcon. We learned of conservation issues including:
  • bioaccumulation of chemicals (esp. DDT)

  • lack of suitable nesting sites

  • conservation laws

  • the effects of low peregrine populations

See the Peregrines nested here in Ottawa atop the Crown Plaza.
