Following Peregrine Falcons

to Recovery, & Beyond 

Presented by Dr. Thomas W. French

The Peregrine Falcon is known for being the fastest animal on the planet, for being the bird of choice for falconry, and for being one of the best-known victims of DDT.  Its dramatic decline in the 1940s through 1960s left the entire eastern U.S. without a single remaining nesting pair.  Dr. Tom French’s program, illustrated with numerous photos, will review the restoration efforts that have led to the remarkable recovery of this amazing bird to Massachusetts, and show how it has adapted to the modern urban environment.

From 1984 until his retirement in March 2019, Tom French served as Director of the Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program at the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife – providing leadership but also doing much of the critical field work.
