EARTHSPAN's Fundraiser:

Padre Island Peregrine Falcon Survey

EARTHSPAN's Photo

BENEFITING: EARTHSPAN

THE STORY:

With almost 40 years of research on Padre Island, the continuation of this survey is important to not only the Peregrine Falcons but also the habitats and wildlife the Peregrine Falcon encounters during their 15,500 mile migration from the Tundra to South America. While the Peregrine Falcon was taken off the endangered species list in 1999, it is still pertinent to sample the migrating falcons during the fall and especially during the spring. Peregrine Falcon blood samples are excellent tools for monitoring oil exposure. Our overall database, when combined with Earthspan's parallel effort at Assateague Island, MD, constitutes the most significant and longest annual monitoring study on this falcon in the Americas. Long-term studies such as ours are essential to assessing the stability of wildlife populations, particularly in light of rapid changes that may occur due to contaminants, infectious diseases, habitat loss, climate change and other factors.
The reason for this fundraiser is to help send our biologists to Padre Island. Currently, the biologists who go to Padre Island twice during the year volunteer to do so. It is hard for anyone to go almost 4 months out of the year without an income. Because of that reason, we are losing biologists who need a steady income throughout the year. With the donations received we will be able to offer stable earnings for their hard work and dedication to this survey.
