African Parrots

The biggest threat to most avian species is deforestation and the destruction of their native habitats. For this reason, both the authors, Jean Pattison and Rick Jordan, believe that a stronghold of every species of parrot must be established in captivity if their kinds are to survive into the future.

As well, the authors believe that not only must each species be represented in captivity, but also they must be well managed; and these populations must become capable of sustaining themselves in captivity, indefinitely.

This objective can only be reached through sound educational materials that reinforce the concepts of professional captive genetic management for every species now kept in aviculture. The concept of a managed captive population, and good record keeping, prompted the authors to write African Parrots and donate the proceeds to the American Federation of Aviculture, Inc.

Loo Falconry - The Royal Loo Hawking Club 1839-1855

Falconry / Raptors

 The Loo Falconry

This book of falconry is indespensible.

 

In the nineteenth century in Europe, falconry was carried out in a spectacular and vibrant way. And there was no more impressive activity than that taking place at the Dutch palace of the House of Orange-Nassau.

 

It was there that the Royal Loo Hawking Club came into being. Founded by passionate falconry advocates famous for their Haut Vol falconry, flying falcons at the graceful and high flying heron, all too soon the Club passed into oblivion.

 

The Loo Falconry celebrates the colorful history and prestige of this international society.
