This is to inform folks about the major contributions that falconers have made to restore the peregrine falcon. Falconers donated birds, expertise, time, and finances to save the peregrine from the brink of extinction.
The late Alva Nye was one of the pioneers in trapping the beach peregrines (arctic sub-race) of the peregrine falcon. Here is a plaque at Assateaque Island in Maryland. Photo, compliments of Mike Dupuy Falconry
