From 1981 to 1989, Manitoba Conservation's Wildlife and Ecosystem Protection Branch was responsible for initiating the reintroduction of peregrine falcons in the province. In 1989, the Zoological Society of Manitoba received a seed grant from the Manitoba Government's Special Conservation Fund to develop a formal recovery project. When the then Delta Winnipeg Hotel (now the Radisson Hotel Winnipeg Downtown) expressed an interest in supporting the project, a new group - the Peregrine Falcon Recovery Project (Manitoba) - was born.
In 1998, the Project became a fully independent not-for-profit conservation organization with charitable status. As such the Project is wholly dependent upon the public for the funds to continue its recovery efforts.
The Peregrine Falcon Recovery Project is the only organization in the province working with Manitoba's wild nesting peregrines to help re-establish a self-sustaining population in the province. If you would like to help support the Project's activities, including initiatives like the Falcon Cam, please consider making a donation or purchasing some of our fundraising items.
Thank you for supporting our efforts to help Manitoba's endangered Peregrine Falcon.
