I have worked with the Raptor Center in MN and they can trace the lineage of the majority of breeding peregrines back to captive stocks through their pedigree system. Sorry just my pet project being and veterinarian and falconer.

Thanks Fini -- we've discussed this a bit as staff. I believe strongly that alignment is key -- there are some frustrations coming through with a "soft spot" in our forum moderation and we'll address by year's end.Some of the comments made in this thread really left a bad taste in my mouth. Is it really that hard to be civil in this debate? I can feel some passion on this topic, just try to keep it kind so no one is turned off.
