PEREGRINE FALCONS., Savage, Candace.  Foreword by Adrian Forsyth.
4 Savage, Candace. Foreword by Adrian Forsyth. PEREGRINE FALCONS.
Vancouver Douglas & McIntyre 1992 1550540106 / 9781550540109 First Edition Very Good+ Very Good 
145 pp, 12 1/4" H. Beautifully illustrated with colour photographs of peregrine falcons, their habitats, nests, eggs, and young provided by 35 of the world's best-known wildlife photographers and falcon researchers. "(T)he peregrine's recent history holds a cautionary tale: in the 1950s and 1960s, these magnificent birds were nearly wiped out when their food chain was contaminated with pesticides, primarily DDT. (Fortunately) they were saved from extinction with the help of a multimillion dollar recovery program. The peregrine is on the wing again throughout much of its range. But as the author warns, we still have not roused ourselves to face the real enemy. DDT and other persistent pesticides continue to be manufactured and exported to the Third World, and the chemical compounds currently used in Western countries may be almost as deadly. We must change agricultural practices on a global scale, Savage argues; only then will we be heeding the message of hope the falcon has long been empowered to bring." Light wrinkling at top of spine. Dust jacket has very light edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds.
