Peregrine falcons are one of the most widespread birds in the entire world, who also call LBI home. They are also the fastest animal on earth with a top speed of 240 mph. Join Ben Wurst, with Conserve Wildlife Foundation of N.J. as he discusses the life history of peregrines and their recovery and management in New Jersey. Ben has worked to monitor and manage falcons in partnership with NJ Division of Fish & Wildlife for over 10 years. He is the one who designed and built the nesting tower on Bonnet Island which greets everyone as they enter the island.
