This new Web site from the nonprofit educational program Raptors in the City was developed to enhance inner city kids' use of technology and connection with nature. Appropriate for all types of students, the site focuses on the Peregrine Falcon, a species previously on the brink of extinction, but, through population recovery efforts on many downtown skyscrapers, has become an endangered species success story. Students are able to navigate through the entire 2002 courtship and nesting story of a pair of falcons nesting on a skyscraper in Cleveland, Ohio, and view images of the birds in their nest. Additionally, the site includes a link to a live falcon cam and describes additional educational curricula that can be purchased from Mindfull Publishing.
