Conservation by Falconry

Thanks to the know-how acquired by the practice of falconry, it is possible to increase the chances of success of the activities of conservation and rehabilitation of raptors.

Falconry can be beneficial for education and the training of birds for rehabilitation puposes. The knowledge of the falconers-concerning the birds they possess – ecology and reproduction in captivity – have unrivaled value in terms for an active participation in projects for reintroduction of endangered species.

In another register, falconry also makes it possible to solve problems related to invasive avian species without having to go through poisoning or extermination. Whether in airports, industrial sites or even urban spaces, it is possible to effaroucher groups of birds and to remove them definitively by using a falconer who use a raptor to shase away other undesirable birds.
