Using the expertise gained by working (living, eating, and breathing!) with everything we do at a specialist zoological collection of birds of prey and owls such as ICBP, we have been privileged to be able to be involved in conservation in many different ways. 

The vulture crisis in South Asia has been one of the ways we have been able to help and work towards conserving the critically endangered vultures there. 

Working in conservation always sounds exciting. Actually, it is a mixture of hard work, travelling cattle class, staying in the cheapest hotels (all to save funds), dealing with the politics of conservation and the personalities of those you are partnering with. As well as the joy of working with the animals (or birds in this case) that you are trying to save. 

 

Conservation to do with tact, change, diplomacy and long-term investment of your time and expertise. But it is well worth it if successful and we are proud to be involved.. 

 

Jemima Parry-Jones is the director of the International Centre for Birds of Prey.
