Since 2001, the NH Conservation License Plate (Moose Plate) program has contributed to the ongoing success of more than 150 projects around New Hampshire. Every county has benefited from the funds raised through the sale of Moose Plates.
Peregrine falcons in New Hampshire produced 29 young this year, more than in any other breeding season during the past half-century. (NH Fish and Game Dept.)
New Hampshire's peregrine falcon population continued its gradual climb toward full recovery in the state.
Management of the state's recovering peregrine falcon population is carried out by NH Audubon, working under contract with the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department's Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Program.
Management actions include tracking recreational use at cliffs, posting temporary closures on rock climbing routes when needed, and providing technical advice to natural resource agencies and to the public.
NH Audubon also recruits, trains and deploys volunteer observers to document peregrine distribution and productivity, and to band young; these activities are currently supported by private donations.
