RAPTOR REGRETS

Some specific raptor conservation programs have been successful: Osprey, Bald Eagle, Cal Condor, Red Kite back to England, Griffin Vulture. However, many of their raptorial cousins are suffering and in danger, says a new global report that surveyed over 500 species. Some of those engandered have very limited range to begin with.

All three of the biggest threats to raptors are being caused and worsened by a certain large mammalian biped: us. Those negatives are habitat loss, climate change and our profitable poisons. How much have we learned in the sixty years since Carson’s SILENT SPRING?
