Northern Aplomado Falcon

Interview Audio ExcerptSee Full Interview Transcript

Peter Jenny, a biologist, falconer and CEO of the Peregrine Fund, recalls the effort to reintroduce the rare aplomado falcon to private lands in South Texas. Property owners were skittish about the possible impact of the Endangered Species Act, and so the Fund worked with the Fish and Wildlife Service to build a Safe Harbor program to shield landowners from liability under the Act, in exchange for allowing the bird's release.
