PPL Promotes Growth of Endangered Species’ Populations

On Friday, May 18th, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will observe the 7th annual Endangered Species Day.  Endangered Species Day is an opportunity for people young and old to learn about the importance of protecting endangered species and the everyday actions that people can take to help protect our nation’s disappearing wildlife.  

Ospreys, peregrine falcons, eagles and barn owls can be seen soaring throughoutPennsylvania’s skies, thanks to PPL’s efforts to help restore the once-dwindling populations of raptors.

We dedicate resources to enhance habitat for threatened or endangered wildlife and work with the Pennsylvania Game Commission and other conservationists to monitor their progress.

Montour, Wallenpaupack, Martin’s Creek, Holtwood and Allentownall have nesting locations for birds of prey. As part of our license to operate at LakeWallenpaupackand Holtwood, PPL is required to have a Bald Eagle Protection Plan in place. This plan, which is prepared in consultation with the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the PA Game Commission, ensures that the development of new recreation facilities do not have a negative effect on the bald eagles. Go to the Birds of Prey webpage to learn more about the birds of prey that have taken up residence at the company’s various locations throughoutPennsylvania
