Position Statement and Code of Conduct for Falconry with respect to Invasive Alien Species


Falconry is a unique partnership between human and predatory bird that has a cultural history going back thousands of years. Falconry is recognised under the EU Birds Directive. Despite a modern erosion of human links with our natural environment and wild inhabitants of these places, Falconry persists to this day throughout the world, and IAF currently has affiliations from 60 countries and links to Falconers in even more countries.
