The Fastest Animal!!!

The Peregrine Falcon by Finnegan

The Peregrine Falcon is endangered and almost went exinct because of the pesticide DDT. Eating birds that had DDT in them made their eggs soft and break or dry out. Peregrines usually live on cliffs but people are trying to help save the Peregrines and are setting up nests in cities so that they can eat city birds like pidgeons.
