The Hawk Board
Falconry - Inscribed by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Mankind
Representing all falconers and bird of prey keepers in the UK
Whatever bird of prey interests you, whether you are a falconer, breeder, display giver or rehabilitator, the Hawk Board is there for you. The HB works continuously and tirelessly to protect all our rights to keep and fly raptors.
We are currently constituted via the falconry club structure which, with the Campaign for Falconry, provides our funding, but we make no distinction and favour no-one, regardless of whether their passion is owls or eagles (and everything in between).
We are the first point of contact between raptor keepers and government departments, and as such have always been included in any consultation on new laws, or changes to existing legislation. We have done this voluntarily for the falconry community since our formation in 1979.
The Hawk Board has strong links with the Countryside Alliance and with the global falconry community through the International Association for Falconry but most of all we strive for a cast iron relationship with the UK's falconers and raptor keepers. Please continue to support us and provide continued feedback on issues you think are important.
