We are very happy to confirm that Dr Gordon Mellor will be speaking at the 1st National Conference for bird of prey professionals:
Gordon is life-long falconer whose passion is rook and crow hawking with a little lowland game hawking thrown in. Gordon is a past President of the British Falconers’ Club and has served on their Council since the early 1990s. He took up the role of Chair of the Hawk Board in 2014 and is currently on the Advisory Group of the International Association for Falconry (IAF).
We are facing a raft of changes to the law affecting bird of prey professionals here in the UK. Changes to Wildlife licences, new licensing for bird of prey displays and exhibitions under a revised Animal Welfare Act, and of course ‘Brexit’.
Now more than ever we need an effective voice speaking to legislators on our behalf.
