The Peregrine Falcon:
Once on the road to extinction, now populations are large and widespread

Image In the 1960s and 70s largely due to the use of DDT, populations of the peregrine falcon declined steeply and in several parts of the world, this species became locally extinct. Through the reduction of DDT use and with the help of captive breeding and release programs, the species has recovered. In 1999 it was removed from the US Endangered Species List.
