In ecosystem management and conservation, a fair number of challenges often arise such as conflicts between species. In collaboration with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Raptor Biologist, Dr. Joel ‘Jeep’ Pagel, we have been monitoring a probable scuffle whereby local populations of endangered California Least Terns (Sternula antillarum browni) are being preyed upon by our resident Peregrine Falcons (Falco peregrinus). Understanding more about these species and their interactions will allow us to develop solutions in the equal interest of both groups to best remedy these conflicts.
