The article focuses on the dangers of the successful falcon captive-breeding programs such as the nonprofit Peregrine Fund in Boise, Idaho. This organization has mastered the captive breeding of birds of prey, the endangered peregrine falcons, and released them into the wild. However, these conservation plans can be an easy way out for a reluctant individual confronting difficult habitat problems. Such cases include a huge threat to the survival of the released animals due to the degrading environment, which is threatened by intensive energy development.
