Join Darryl McGrath who discusses her new book, Flight Paths: A Field Journal of Hope, Heartbreak, and Miracles with New York’s Bird People, that documents raptor recovery programs over the last forty years in New York, and pays tribute to the determination of the women biologists who helped make these programs possible. These early women conservationists played key roles in the projects that kept the Peregrine Falcon and Bald Eagle from going extinct, and were among the first scientists to achieve success in this kind of conservation work. Their research often unfolded in the wilderness, under difficult, isolated and even dangerous conditions.
