For the first time, the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature of Jordan has joined the International Saudi Falcons and Hunting Exhibition to showcase Jordan’s experience in regulating hunting and training falcons.
The supervisor of Jordanian pavilion Abdulrazzaq Al-Hamoud said the Saudi Falcons Club hosted the event which was a good platform to highlight the society’s role in raising environmental awareness, promoting laws on hunting regulations and protecting falcons from overhunting since 1970s.
Al-Hamoud also said they were looking for partnerships with Saudi Arabian and Arab groups to share experiences on wildlife protection, regulation and ecotourism, among others, as he praised the Kingdom’s environmental efforts with the establishment of new nature reserves.
Meanwhile, the Kuwaiti ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Ali Al-Khaled Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, toured the falcon and hunting exhibition and had a first-hand look at how falcons were being prepared for the daily auctions, Arab News reported today.
The envoy also inspected products on display in the pavilions, and was also briefed by representatives of falconry farms participating in the event.
