Peregrine falcons

We monitor the impact our projects and equipment have on peregrine falcons to help protect the species at risk.

One of the tallest buildings in the Selkirk area is Selkirk generating station. Its high location near water has made it the nesting spot of choice for a pair of peregrines falcons. For several years the birds have nested at the generating station after their long migration from their wintering grounds in the southern USA and Mexico. We’ve worked with the Peregrine Falcon Recovery Project to protect them.
