"The Falconry Fund is a new 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to support and protect the various arts and practices of falconry and the cultural and environmental assets that make it possible. The Falconry Fund, Inc., seeks to become a vital and effective nonprofit charitable organization based in the United States to serve falconers on the North American continent and elsewhere so that this art and practice may be pursued without undue restriction and free from current or potential threats by incompatible human activity.""
"Our organization is dedicated to the preservation of the ancient art of falconry, a hunting tradition defined as ‘taking quarry in its natural state and habitat by means of trained birds of prey‘. Preserving falconry involves maintaining not only the traditional culture that builds practical skills of empathy with animals, but also the conservation of raptors and their prey through Preservation Of Natural Habitats. We therefore encourage falconry within the context of sustainable use of wildlife.""
"North American Falconers Association was founded in 1961 to encourage the proper practice of the sport of falconry and the wise use and conservation of birds of prey. From a handful of members in its early years, NAFA has grown to a membership today of approximately 2,000 and is today the largest membership falconry organization in the world."
