Time;7/26/1976, Vol. 108 Issue 4, p62
The article discusses the Cornell Program introduced by the Cornell University headed by ornithologist Tom Cade that aims to boost the peregrine population. It says that the program successfully breed the falcons and return them to the wild or their natural home. It mentions the methods used to breed the falcons specially the capturing of the wild birds that nest on cliffs and towering places and the great challenge of making them stay on them stay on the man-made eyries. The willingness of the falcons to survive is determined a significant factor that helps them stand the civilization that wants to wipe them out.
