An uncomplicated mission statement comes from the folks devoted to preserving, respecting, learning more, and teaching others about the peregrine falcon, a raptor whose number plummeted about 50 years ago from DDT.  

The Pacific Coast Peregrine Watch mission statement reads: 

The Pacific Coast Peregrine Watch is here so that you might enjoy these magnificent birds in the field with powerful spotting scopes, photos and our personal knowledge. The knowledge gained by all visitors gives the awareness of  interactions between the birds and the biome so that we can be better stewards of the Earth.

We are here to educate through observation. 
The website chronicles peregrine observations with commentary and outstanding photographs.
