To me, falconry represents the intersection of an understanding of wildlife, conservation, history, and culture. While many approach the art of falconry from hunting, I approached it from my deep love and admiration of the predator-prey relationship. With falconry, I am able to see up close how habitat, prey, and predator are all interplaying and connected.
Being a part of falconry means learning and passing on spoken knowledge that dates back over 3000 years. That knowledge has lead to the conservation of numerous raptor species include peregrine falcons, California condors, and the American kestrel.
