African Falcon Services

The Friends of Lake Louisa State Park invite you to attend the next installment of their speaker series on Friday, August 25th at 7:00pm. The topic of this presentation will be “Conservation Around the World: A Local Clermont Resident’s Adventures in Africa Working with African Falcon Services”. Christy Conk, President of the Friends of Lake Louisa State Park, will share stories and photos of her work with African Falcon Services using animal training to environmentally protect sorghum crops, the main staple food source for the country of Botswana, over the past two years. By utilizing trained lanner falcons and peregrine minor falcons to abate red-billed quelea (a finch-like species that arrives in the millions to consume and decimate this precious crop) it is possible to protect the crops with a green alternative
