NJ Audubon: The Peregrine Project
December 17, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Presented by Wayne Quinto Greenstone, Photographer
Wayne Quinto Greenstone will present The Peregrine Project, a documentation of the return of the Peregrine Falcon. For the past year, Mr. Greenstone has been documenting the Peregrine Falcons that have returned to their historic nesting sites along the Palisades Cliffs, some 500 feet above the Hudson River. This classic tale of human sin and redemption as told by the Peregrine Falcons of the Palisades holds the promise of hope and belief that we can address our current existential threats with the same focus and resolve that returned the Peregrine Falcon from the brink.
The Peregrine Falcon is the fastest animal on Earth, capable of reaching speeds over 200 miles per hour when diving upon prey. Yet this master of the skies fell victim to the pesticide DDT, and by the early 1960’s there were no known nesting pairs east of the Mississippi River. As the result of extraordinary human efforts to ban this dreaded poison and raise falcons in captivity for release into the wild, these formidable birds have made an incredible comeback over the past two decades.
This is an in-person program.
Registration at Eventbrite required by 12/16 at 4:00 PM.
