Falconer and veterinarian, Dr. Dominik Fischer, will also provide some interesting facts on health-care measures and select diseases with the use of extensive imagery and film footage. Of course, he will also provide suggestions on how to handle injured and orphaned wild birds, thus giving participants professional first-aid instruction.

Practical exercises concerning training and the equipment involved in falconry as well as an extensive and informative before- and behind-the-scenes tour of the Raptor Center Hellenthal.

Catering during coffee breaks and lunch as well as admission to the park are included in the price. The one-day seminar starts at 9 a.m. and ends at approx. 4 p.m.
