When the majestic predator birds fly their circles above the endless desert at dawn, the masters keep a watchful eye on their protégés. In Arabic countries, the falconry has a long tradition. Training and hunting with these noble birds is a kind of sport and passion at the same time, and nowadays it is also the origin of a very special nature preserve project. In Dubai, the falcons are bred in order to be set free in their natural environment. They are meant to re-conquer their natural living space in order to support the growth of the natural population.
