Tier 2 (Great North Woods): Take a selfie on the property AND answer these questions: 

2200 protected acres surround Christine Lake including Percy Summer Club easement and the Forest Society Kauffman Forest - all located between 787,000 acre White Mountain National Forest and 40,000 acre Nash Steam State Forest. Christine Lake is now home to trout, loons, ospreys, bald eagles and the cliffs of Devil's Slide are home to nesting peregrine falcons. These bird species are making a comeback.

Question:

1. What happened to reduce these bird species numbers?

2. What threats might they face in the future?
