The Peregrine’s Saga

March 27, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Please join the Friends of San Pedro Valley Park on March 27th at 4 pm as we host Dr. Doug Bell, Wildlife Program Manager at East Bay Regional Park District, for a riveting lecture on a beautiful raptor – the peregrine falcon.
This talk will provide an overview of the peregrine falcon’s saga, from the pre-DDT era through its drastic world-wide population crash to its present full recovery and beyond. We will touch on the cadre of researchers and citizen scientists who uncovered the DDT story as well as the efforts to save the peregrine through captive breeding and reintroduction. In addition to illustrating the breeding chronology of peregrines, we will also discuss how its biology has allowed it to inhabit both the natural and the “built” environment. While the talk will focus on California, it will present a global perspective.
