The Peregrine Fund's Mission
The Peregrine Fund was founded in 1970 to restore the Peregrine Falcon, which was removed from the U.S. Endangered Species List in 1999. That success encouraged the organization to expand its focus and apply its experience and understanding to raptor conservation efforts on behalf of more than 100 species in 65 countries worldwide, including the California Condor and Aplomado Falcon in the United States. The organization is non-political, solution-oriented and hands-on, with a mission to:
- Restore rare species through captive breeding and releases.
- Improve capacity for local conservation.
- Conduct scientific research and environmental education.
- Conserve habitat.
The Peregrine Fund was founded in 1970 by Professor Tom Cade at Cornell University to help save the Peregrine Falcon from the brink of extinction.
In 1984, The Peregrine Fund consolidated its operations and established the World Center for Birds of Prey on a scenic hilltop in Boise, Idaho. The 580-acre campus consists of:
- Business offices of The Peregrine Fund
- Breeding facilities for endangered birds of prey
- Velma Morrison Interpretive Center
- Herrick Collections Building, which houses:
The Peregrine Fund is activly involved in conservation worldwide in North America, Neotropics, Africa, and the Asia-Pacific. At the Interpretive Center we aim to share past and present programs inorder to inspire the public to look towards the future of birds of prey species.
