Peregrine Falcons

The peregrine falcon became an endangered species in many areas because of the widespread use of certain pesticides, especially DDT. By 1961, there were no successfully nesting peregrines in Pennsylvania. By 1964, there were no nesting falcons in all of North America. How did nature's fastest flyers recover? Find out first hand on this episode with Art McMorris, peregrine falcon coordinator for the PA Game Commission.
