The North Carolina General Assembly enacted the Nongame Wildlife Tax Checkoff in 1983. This allows citizens to contribute a part or all of their state income tax refund to the management of nongame and endangered wildlife. Funds from this program are supporting the reintroduction of peregrine falcons and eagles to the skies of North Carolina.
More peregrine falcons and bald eagles have been released in the state's reintroduction program which began in 1984. Ten peregrines were released from two sites--six from Grandfather Mountain and four from Yellow Mountain in the Nantahala National Forest. Ten bald eagles were released at the Lake Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuge in Hyde County.
