Utah's Peregrine Falcons
During the 1960s and 1970s the number of Peregrine falcons have drastically declined worldwide mainly because of exposure to pesticides. But in the past couple of decades, peregrines have been slowly making a comeback into urban areas, including those in Utah, thanks to efforts by ornithologists and wildlife preservationists. Each year, the birds return to lay eggs and nest on ledges high above tall Salt Lake City buildings. On today's Thinking Aloud, we're talking to falcon experts who have been active here in Utah and around the world, in their efforts to restore Peregrine falcon populations. Join us with BYU's Clayton White and Bob Walters from the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. —Original airdate: 11/13/2008
