US FWS: Restore the permit to rescue falcon chicks on bridges

Peregrine falcons bring a touch of wild beauty into our urban areas. Because we have destroyed so much of their habitat, they turn to man-made bridges for nesting, but the chicks face a risk of drowning as they learn to fly.

The Santa Cruz Predatory Bird Research Group has been rescuing this once-endangered species for decades. They are willing to continue rescuing and relocating falcon chicks from Northern California bridges for free -- at no cost to taxpayers.

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service recently revoked the PBRG's permit to relocate falcon chicks from bridges. It is wrong to sit by passively and let peregrine chicks - which remain on the Potected list for the State of California -- drown when someone is willing to save them! US FWS should restore the permit to Glenn Stewart and the Predatory Bird Research Group so they can continue their great work rescuing these beautiful creatures.
