In February 2001, we visited Mount Albion Public School in Stoney Creek with our two-year-old male peregrine falcon "Scotty". Below are some comments from the principal, and letters from four of the students:
The Peregrine Falcon Presentation was excellent for our Grade 4,5, and 6 students. The information linked directly to support the Grade 4 Science and Technology Curriculum, Life System strand "Habitats and Communities". The facts about Scotty's characteristics, habits, environment, and the impact that society has had on this species served as a "living" example to the students. They were impressed by Scotty's intelligence.
The video was very relevant for the students as it emphasized how these birds have adapted to a very different environment. Many connections could be made to how humans have needed to adapt to various societal variables, pressures, and challenges.
We would recommend the Canadian Peregrine Foundation's presentation for any organization.

I enjoyed the presentation because it was interesting to learn and find out about an animal I've never heard of. I also liked when Mr. Pfeffer said that a lot of people are looking out for them because they are an endangered species. I think these presentations are important because it keeps us aware or up to date on our animal life and also because it tells us things that we can do to prevent things like animals from becoming endangered.
The Peregrine Falcon presentation was great! Scotty was really cute and I wish I had a Peregrine Falcon. The presentation told me to do something about garbage, pesticides and fumes from cars and factories. I think that you were a great speaker and Scotty was a great demonstration. Thanks a lot for coming to Mount Albion.
We enjoyed the Peregrine Falcon presentation. We think it is important to hear about this issue because it tells us how Peregrine Falcons are endangered. We really enjoyed the part when Mr. Pfeffer brought Scotty out. We thought the movie told us a lot about the Peregrine Falcon's life and what it eats and how they have suffered in the past. We think it was very thoughtful of Mr. Pfeffer to come in and show us this presentation and I think that everybody enjoyed it a lot!
I enjoyed the Peregrine Falcon presentation. We think that it is important to hear about these issues because a couple of years from now, if the Peregrine Foundation hadn't started their cause, we probably would only have ten of fifteen falcons left. I really enjoyed seeing Scotty! Thank you for starting your cause and bringing in Scotty. I think the presentation made more people realize that our animals are important and disappearing really fast.
