International Wildlife Consultants (UK) Ltd.
specialising in green solutions
We are a small company based in West Wales with 40 years of practical conservation achievements, mainly
birds of prey.We run projects currently UK, Bulgaria, Siberia, Kazakhstan,
and China. We breed falcons in Wales to offset the demand for wild falcons in the Middle
and also run an artificial nest programme in Mongolia which this year has produced about 2000 young wild Saker Falcons as well as many other steppe raptors. We work on the genetics and regional genetic diversity of large falcons and have collaborated to analyse the genome of the Peregrine and of the Saker Falcons. We have also worked on welfare aspects of killing or capturing wild vertebrates in
. We have supported the good management of birds of prey by making a series of management films and by providing internships for young people from many nations. We were instrumental in making the submission to UNESCO so that now Falconry has been inscribed on the List of Mankind's Intangible Cultural Heritage on behalf of 13 countries. We have organised the International Festivals of Falconry in 2007, 2009 and 2011 and 2014 with 77 nations attending. IWC is based on a
working stock farm and as well as promoting practical wildlife diversity, it is developing the Bevis Centre or country school to give opportunities to people to learn about the countryside.
