World Bird Sanctuary Visits Prairie State
Prairie State's Environmental, Health and Safety department introduced PSGC to Liberty, a bald eagle, and Millenium, a falcon, today as part of the World Bird Sanctuary's presentation. Liberty had been injured in a car accident several years ago and, while healed, is unable to fly well enough to live in the wild. Millenium, having worked in some mines, is now enjoying her retirement at the sanctuary.
World Bird Sanctuary, www.worldbirdsanctuary.org, located in St. Louis County, has a mission to preserve biological diversity and secure the threatened bird species. It also works with utilities and mines internationally, assisting them with the management of a pigeon and other pest populations, while preserving and improving bird populations. PSGC is considering employing the World Bird Sanctuary's falcon program at its power plant.
