Providence Peregrine Webcam

nest_screen.jpg

NOW LIVE!

Perched high above the streets of Providence, 30 floors up, they inhabit the very top of what is perhaps Providence's most recognizable building (often referred to as the Superman Building.)

Yet the "new" family of Peregrine Falcons is always in the camera's eye. 

In an arrangement involving the building owner, Audubon Society of Rhode Island, Cox Business and other private donors, the Peregrine Falcon nesting box can be viewed live online thanks to the cameras trained on the magnificent raptors who have made their home there for over a decade.

Asian Longhorned Beetle

longhorned_beetle_screen_shot.png

The Asian Longhorned Beetle (ALB) is an invasive insect that feeds on certain species of hardwood trees, eventually killing them. The ALB most likely came to the United States inside wood packing material from Asia. Since it was first discovered in Brooklyn, New York in 1996, the beetle has caused tens of thousands of trees to be destroyed in Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York.

If the ALB were to become established here, it could become one of the most destructive and costly pests ever to enter the United States. If we don't find and stop the ALB, we'll lose more than trees. We'll lose industries worth billions of dollars - and wildlife habitats too. Our yards and neighborhoods will take decades to recover.
