Saving the Peregrine Falcon Caroline Arnold Photographs by Richard R. Hewett
New - 1985 - Hardcover Library binding - 48 pages - 9 x 9 1/2
In the 1960s and 1970s the populations of the Peregrine Falcon plummeted because of DDT toxicity. The eggshells became so thin, the chicks weren't viable. Various Conservation groups and Universities worked together to save these magnificent birds that were becoming more endangered. With a ban on DDT and captive breeding and reintroduction to the wild and urban areas, the populations of these falcons has increased to the point where they again have healthy populations. With photgraphs of the process, this books shows how Peregrine chicks were raised to be released in the wild.
