logo-pedago-rapce-01Traditions, through live demonstrations Majestic birds of prey… Under the watchful eye of the master falconer, these magnificent birds soar the sky before diving to attack lures. Falconers, during the shows, inform the audience about the history of the art of training birds of prey and explain the importance of the birds’ place in the ecosystem, regulating the populations of their prey. During free-flight shows of falcons, eagles, owls, vultures, buzzards and other birds of prey, the trainers explain with great passion the distinct features of the different species and describe their different habitats. A wonderful way to share a cultural heritage !
