Peter Jenny

   Biography

Peter Jenny retired as President of The Peregrine Fund in 2016. His association with TPF began when he accompanied founding director Robert Berry to the eastern Canadian Arctic to collect some of the first Peregrine Falcons to be used for captive breeding. Once captive breeding was successful, Peter manned one of the early release sites on the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania. After graduating from the University of Montana with a bachelor's degree in zoology, Peter pioneered The Peregrine Fund's involvement in the Neotropics with his research on the rare Orange-breasted Falcon and subsequently co-founded the Maya Project with the late Peregrine Fund President William Burnham. An active falconer and private pilot, Peter enjoys a variety of field sports including bird hunting and fly-fishing.
