The International Association for Falconry and Conservation of Birds of Prey is the global representative organization for falconers with members from 89 countries worldwide. Falconers, as a group have a deep respect and interest in raptors, biodiversity and the
environment. We have a very intimate relationship with nature and the natural environment and so are effective sentinels for changes which may occur.

We are deeply aware of the many pressures facing biodiversity and the environment but we also believe that positive actions are necessary to address these challenges.  As a result, our conservation actions are often directed at community level and seek to address and correct or mitigate problems. Thus, while a major issue for us is the electrocution of raptors, our actions are to raise awareness and encourage remedial action. Similarly, we promote the conservation work of our member organizations and encourage practical measures which aim to make positive contributions to conservation issues.

We are very pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with organizations which have the same approach to conservation issues and to counter the very negative approach to conservation issues which is can too-often prevent cooperation and cross-pollination in the sector.

IAF wishes you & your loved ones a blessed Ramzan.

It is with great sadness that we heard the announcement of the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh from Buckingham Palace this morning. He has been a Honorary Member of the British Falconers Club since 1953 and was a great supporter of environment. iaf_falconry photo
