Join us for a discussion of all aspects of the American Kestrel including identification, distribution, habitat requirements, diet, and life cycle. Most importantly, we will discuss the kestrel’s status as a threatened species in New Jersey, the reasons for its population decline, conservation efforts for the kestrel, and CWF’s specific involvement in successful conservation projects. Learn about other threatened and endangered bird species in New Jersey that use the same habitat as the kestrel, how these species face the same threats, and discover CWF’s newest conservation project to protect and restore habitat for these birds, especially the state-endangered Upland Sandpiper.
Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey (CWF) is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and preservation of New Jersey’s endangered and threatened wildlife and the habitats they depend on. We carry out our mission by researching and managing rare animal species, restoring habitat, educating New Jersey’s residents, and engaging volunteers in our conservation projects. Since the early 1990’s, CWF scientists and educators have helped conserve and protect a variety of at-risk species of wildlife in New Jersey, the most densely populated state in the nation.
