The Santa Cruz Predatory Bird Research Group was a leader in the work to recover the Pacific States Peregrine Falcon population from near extinction. Today, we build upon this success story with a university based conservation education program that includes: Falcon Nest Cameras, School Assemblies, Citizen Science Participation, University Internships, and Peregrine Falcon Research.
