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 2017
Hello everyone, and welcome to this new-look newsletter. This new format is indeed a departure and may even be the first of its kind for a falconry publication, but we hope that this will give our readers across the globe greater interactivity and engagement with the IAF Newsletter.
Whether you’re reading this on your smartphone in bed, your laptop at your workdesk or on your tablet on the couch, this edition is designed to put you right in front of what is going on around the world in the 86 countries in IAF’s jurisdiction. This is only the first step and we ask that you bear with us while we master this technology. Translations, as ever, are something we are desperate to improve on. If you think you can help us with this, please get in touch now. Our ambition is for the IAF Newsletter to be the most widely read falconry publication on the planet, but this won’t happen without your help. […]

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. […]
