A new searchable database of IRBPP Members is launched today. The directory lists Professional Falconers in the UK and elsewhere who meet high welfare standards and who are subject to quality assurance processes through the IRBPP Register.
15 categories including Bird Control, School Visits, Certificated Training and much more are listed alongside location maps and contact details.

Following months of detailed talks National Bird Control (NBC) have thrown their weight behind the IRBPP and Raptor Awards. From 2021 all of their directly employed bird control operatives as well as their Delivery Partners will be required to hold Raptor Awards modules C1 to C9.
In addition NBC are also specifying that their wider network of Delivery Partners must take up IRBPP membership either as an individual or corporate body.
Richard Henderson, Operations Manager at NBC said today:
We believe that a properly trained workforce, holding recognised qualifications, and committed to bird of prey welfare is the right move for NBC. This is good for us, good for the sector and good for our clients and customers.
