International Wildlife Consultants (UK) Ltd.
specialising in green solutions
Our new subsidiary company Wingbeat Ltd is now taking off big time - checkout www.rofalconry.com.
Our new factory building is now almost complete and should be ready for use in early May. Our first major product - the Robara - is a radio controlled model Houbara that can be caught by falcons. It will be launched at the Abu Dhabi International Hunting Exhibition in September and we hope will be a major tool for conservation. We are now looking for a Manager to run operations in Wales, near Carmarthen. The successful candidate will have experience of dealing with suppliers, stock control, staff, logistics, exports and distributors. A knowledge of Arabic or Middle East experience would be useful. Some international travel is involved. Salary will be commensurate with experience. Contact the IWC General Manager firstname.lastname@example.org
We are a small company based in West Wales with 40 years of practical conservation achievements, mainly on birds of prey.We run projects currently UK, Bulgaria, Siberia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and China. We breed falcons in Wales to offset the demand for wild falcons in the Middle East, 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 vetebrates in UK. 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 20011. The next one will be in Abu Dhabi in 2014 and we expect to see 77 nations attending. IWC is based on a 278 acre 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.
