Peregrine Falcons with CWF Habitat Program Manager Ben Wurst
Time & Place
Beach Haven Public Library, 247 N Beach Ave, Beach Haven, NJ
The peregrine falcon, also known as the duck hawk, is the largest falcon in New Jersey, and the world’s fastest animal, capable of flying at speeds over 200 miles an hour. Just a few decades ago, peregrine falcons disappeared east of the Mississippi River — yet today we can celebrate 28 active falcon nests in New Jersey. For the world’s fastest animal to again thrive in New Jersey speaks both to the peregrine falcon’s inspiring resiliency and to the hard work and visionary leadership of those who worked for their successful comeback. The Peregrine falcon – the Fastest Animal on Earth, gives the public a glimpse into the life of the peregrine falcon, the adaptations that make him unique and how he overcame adversity in the Garden State.
Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey (CWF) is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and preservation of New Jersey’s endangered and threatened wildlife and the habitats they depend on. We carry out our mission by researching and managing rare animal species, restoring habitat, educating New Jersey’s residents, and engaging volunteers in our conservation projects. Since the early 1990’s, CWF scientists and educators have helped conserve and protect a variety of at-risk species of wildlife in New Jersey, the most densely populated state in the nation.
