PPL’s commitment to helping peregrines spans decades
PPL has a long-standing involvement with efforts to restore the peregrine falcon population. In 1995, the company began its support of the Lehigh Valley Peregrine Project to release young peregrine falcons from the top its 322-foot headquarters building in downtown Allentown in the hope that the falcons would come back to the area. We also built a nesting box on our headquarters building.
In 2018, a pair of peregrines returned to the PPL building to nest, marking the first time since 2008 that peregrines successfully nested there.
