The Peregrine Fund

The Peregrine Fund was founded in 1970 by Tom Cade, a professor of Ornithology at Cornell University. There was a shared concern of students and associates that the Peregrine Falcon might go extinct in the wild if nothing was done. Their initial work was to learn how to breed falcons in captivity, with the idea the young could be released in the wild to re-establish  the Peregrine Falcon in the United States. 






Archives of American Falconry

The Peregrine Fund founded The Archives of American Falconry in 1986 to preserve the history and heritage of this ancient sport in the Americas. Falconers have always been leaders in conservation of birds of prey.
