Flight of the Kestrel
In 1974, only 4 members of the Mauritius Kestrel species (a small bird of the falcon family) existed. Through great efforts, led by the late, great naturalist, Gerard Durrell, the species now numbers around 800. This piece celebrates the persisitent conservation effort to rescue this once nearly extinct animal.
