About my Species: Peregrine Falcons are found on every continent except Antarctica and are the fastest animals on the planet, diving at speeds of over 200 mph. Their species is endangered in Wisconsin due to habitat loss and poisoning, but populations have grown due to conservation efforts and the ban of DDT in 1973.
