THE FIRST OF THE FLAGSHIP PROJECT
The project is a co-operation between the IAF, UNEP, Birdlife and IUCN. The Saker Portal to Enhance Trust is an online information portal, which has been completely funded and managed by the IAF. It is designed to communicate with falconers, trappers and falcon hospitals in saker range countries, developing their trust, educating on sustainable use and conservation and gaining information on the scale of saker use.
It links here in English to another part of this portal project, which is in Arabic, Pashto, Persian and Russian, for falconers, trappers and local land managers in Saker breeding areas. That site cassies the results of a survey which has now started to embrace in management and monitoring all those whose passion and livelihoods involve the Saker Falcon.
THE SECOND OF THE FLAGSHIP PROJECTS
In order to understand what is causing the decline of saker falcon populations we first need to know where they go. Using satellite tracking on tagged birds will allow us to map their migration routes and identify the main cause of saker falcon deaths.
IAF has initiated the second flagship project – co-founding the first ten loggers for the 100 satellite tagged sakers of the 100 proposed in the Saker Proposed Action Plan
