IAF Newsletter, Autumn 2021

At a time when nothing is certain and we have all been starved of a sense of community, the recent Council of Delegates Meeting and IAF conferences that took place in Abu Dhabi were a wonderful experience.

Hosted at ADIHEX by kind invitation of the Emirates Falconers Club, IAF was able to assemble a small but remarkable gathering of younger delegates, all of whom were facilitated to travel to Abu Dhabi for the meeting by the generosity of our hosts.Open IAF Newsletter Autumn 2021

IAF Newsletter, Winter 2017/2018

WITH uncountable memories of the International Festival of Falconry still fresh in the mind, two major items of news have just arrived in that are the icing on the cake of what has been an incredible 2017 for IAF. The first is the legalisation of falconry in Denmark after a very long absence. The other is the purchase of an IAF base in Brussels. The former was announced during that festival week, and seeing falconers from so many different nations celebrate the achievement was proof, were it needed, that falconry is a global community that stands together.

IAF Newsletter, Spring 2015

We want this edition to be a platform for falconers everywhere to show why falconry is a truly global family. To do this, we have tried to include translations for the copy where possible, with an emphasis on Spanish, Russian and Arabic. We are not yet at the stage where we can get the entire publication translated into multiple languages but this is our goal over time so that we connect with falconers beyond English-speaking regions. This publication is yours and it can only exist if you play your part. We need representatives to send us news and reports about what is going on where they are, how falconry is changing, what issues you face and what strengths you enjoy in your particular strand of falconry.

IAF Newsletter, Autumn 2013

People often talk of the quality of our sport, sometimes the artistic aspects as they perceive them, all seen in the light of our current values and society in which they live. Much comment seems to look at characters who lived a century or ve centuries ago describing them as they fit into current perspective of values, with the assumption that this man was motivated by today’s values, defining his actions by modern secular and scientific perspectives. This may also be applied to people from diΕerent cultures today but reality can be very diferent? If we could meet that man from 5 centuries ago or even a man today from another culture or religion his explanations might be very different from our expectations. At the IAF AGM we have been looking into some of the historical aspects of falconry in Europe in the company of falconers from all over the world. […] Download IAF_Newsletter_Aut_2013.pdf +(6.8MB)
