Welcome to the Canadian Peregrine Foundation. We are a Federally Chartered Canadian Registered Charity (a non profit group) dedicated to the restoration and recovery of endangered and threatened raptors (birds of prey) here in Canada.
The primary purpose of the Canadian Peregrine Foundation is to facilitate the recovery of endangered and threatened raptor species in Canada. To accomplish this, the Foundation's objectives are to:
Document the current status of the Peregrine Falcon and other endangered and threatened raptor species in Canada, contribute to and monitor the ongoing recovery efforts for these species, and make such information available to the public and, in particular, educational institutions.
Raise public awareness of the environmental issues affecting Canada's endangered and threatened species.
Provide support to projects involving the recovery, protection, restoration, and rehabilitation of Canada's endangered and threatened raptor species.
Educational, research, monitoring, protection, restoration projects ongoing.
The Canadian Peregrine Foundation believes that informing the public about conservation issues is critical to the continued recovery of the peregrine falcon and other endangered species. Currently, the Foundation is focusing largely on Project School Visit, an outreach program aimed at students in grades 4 and 6 across Ontario, soon to expand to eastern Canada. Our aim is to instill a conservation ethic in children at a young age in the hope that they will grow up to be concerned stewards of the environment. The Foundation also reaches out to adults through visits to community groups, festivals, etc. The Foundation's goal in all cases is to raise awareness of environmental issues in general, and to generate support for the protection of endangered species such as the peregrine falcon in particular
