Raptor Aid is not just about the birds of prey within the UK. The conservation of species the world over is important and how can we forget that the UK shares some species with other parts of the world? Again, there are many areas of concern for conservation of birds of prey worldwide and many different cultures and beliefs that can play a role in the treatment of birds of prey in the wild. Some of the areas can be found in the list below
- Habitat loss
- Climate change
- Trapping and shooting
- Wind turbines and Power lines
- Religion & believes
- Illegal trade
Sometimes it can be hard to understand why someone in a remote part of the world might shoot an endangered bird of prey but Raptor Aid believes we have to look a little deeper into a situation and work with organisations who are trying to educate. Economic pressures also put a huge amount of strain on birds of prey and it should be the governments who realise how important it is to safe guard our natural resources including birds of prey.
