IAF – International Association for Falconry and Conservation of Birds of Prey

The organization is dedicated to the preservation of the ancient art of falconry, a hunting tradition defined as ”taking quarry in its natural state and habitat by means of trained birds of prey”. Preserving falconry involves maintaining not only the traditional culture that builds practical skills of empathy with animals, but also the conservation of raptors and their prey through preservation of natural habitats. IAF therefore encourage falconry within the context of sustainable use of wildlife.
