Falconers' contributions acknowledged

"Presidents aren’t the only people who take care of our nation’s treasured wildlife. In the 1970s falconers donated their own trained peregrine falcons to start the experimental captive-breeding program credited with the recovery of this swift and agile falcon and its removal from the endangered species list in 1999."
