Raptor Conservation Day
in Association with Golden Eagle Trust Ltd
August 22, 2015
The Birds of Prey Centre at Aillwee Cave, Ballyvaughan, Co Clare
The Birds of Prey Centre is holding its Annual Raptor Conservation Day and fundraiser on August 22nd, 2015.
The centre supports global raptor conservation and locally supports the work of the Golden Eagle Trust, which is responsible for the reintroduction of some of Ireland’s most enigmatic raptors, the Red Kite, White-Tailed Eagle and Golden Eagle.
Alongside dynamic flying demonstrations and presentations on global raptor conservation by the centre staff, Golden Eagle Trust Project Manager Dr Marc Ruddock will also be making a special presentation on the Irish raptor reintroductions.
There will be opportunities to meet falconers and raptor experts, while Golden Eagle Trust staff will be dispensing information leaflets alongside static displays, including details about the work of the Trust in conjunction with the nationwide Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU). On the day, visitors will get a chance to get up close with a range of eagles, falcons, owls and vultures and learn more about conservation measures to protect these majestic animals.
A raffle will be held with a range of prizes to be won, including hawk walks, artwork and photographs, as well as a chance to spend the day with a raptor biologist in the field, observing and learning all about the graceful Red Kite and its reintroduction project. All money raised on the day goes to supporting the work of the Golden Eagle Trust.
