Default Australian Falconers

Need Our Support

All falconers need to either write a letter or send an email to:

Australian Prime Minister
Malcolm Turnbull

http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/REC-WCAG20-20081211/

Https://www.pm.gov.au/contact-your-pm

Asking why the government acknowledges the world laws re internet, yet refuses to acknowledge a Human Heritage Cultural Activity that the rest of the world has ? They need to install falconry regulations & wild capture laws to protect this very special art for future generations. Every letter & email forces them to answer, with no actual defence they will appear very misinformed.

This is what I sent in support, I hope others follow my lead.

Prime Minister Malcolm

Sir:

I fail to see the reasoning in your failure to embrace a recognized World Cultural Heritage activity to wit Falconry. Unless you hope this sport will not prosper or continue your future generations, contrary to the rest of the worlds view on the subject. You have a problem with rabbits that costs your government thousands of dollars per year, well probably the foremost prey in this sport are rabbits.

Its also a gold mine for Falconers to bring their birds to hunt, dogs a rabbit population with no limits on take, in other words people will pay to hunt your rabbits, especially with their birds. Why you don't establish Falconry rules & regulations with a wild take is unbelievable in this day & age.

Sincerely

Sir:

Are you aware of how this is hurting your citizens, and this cultural activity ? I would petition you to read this to your parliament for awareness and rectify this asap.

Interesting!

I’m the Australian national delegate to the IAF and have been working at this for a good few years now.

Australia isn’t signed up to the particular part of UNESCO which recognises any Intangible Cultural Heritage so they’ll dismiss that aspect.

I’m interested in your thoughts as to why you think the plan of action that you are suggesting might work, particularly why you think Australians might consider for one fraction of a second the possibility of wild take of protected raptors for ‘sport’ (just playing a little at Devil’s advocate, you’ll understand).

Love your enthusiasm. Michael.

And of course all Australian Wildlfe laws and regulation is overseen by the individual States and Territories. That makes it very difficult from a national point of view. In some states you can hunt and shoot quail and ducks, in others you can use ferrets to hunt rabbits, in others you can’t do any of these things, it’s very complicated!

There’s also possibly the tightest bio security rules in the world in place so the notion that falconers might ‘bring their birds’ would only raise serious concerns....they have import/export restrictions from one State to another!

There are many difficulties that need to be understood.

A few weeks ago I posted the following on Facebook:

I can only encourage anyone who has an interest in falconry in Australia to get in touch with Michael Calvin as he has the "blueprint" and together take this forward as an organised group looking after the common interest of all current and potential future Australian falconers.

Please don't send off "chain mail" to authorities as potentially they could have a negative effect and undo years of hard work.

As Michael pointed out he is the Australian Delegate to the IAF so let's rather leave things in the hands of organised falconry.

I couldn't agree more, I can see the Australian government responding better to a knowledgeable individual to represent Falconry.

I have been meaning to ask and this has reminded me - how are thing's going with it all at the minute Mike? Has much progress been made?

Kind Regards,

Bradley

I may be wrong, probably am actually but the info I read indicates that 195 countries formed UNESCO, thus agreeing to its purpose & goals. Sub-committees were elected to handle certain area topics & details. An issue, proposal would be submitted, to the relevant committee for consideration, argument and vote on. It would then pass/fail based on how that majority voted. If passed any country that signed the UNESCO is bound to support what that committee passed. If not they are in violation of a UN Mandate they agreed to. Anyways Mike is doing a great job, that is very tough, time consuming and expensive, so lets all shake his hand.

I would wonder if a class action for a violation of Rights under Unesco-Uae of its citizens would do? By signing the Unesco automatically recognizes UAE decisions.

UNESCO UAU

Text of the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage

https://ich.unesco.org/en/convention#art10

Article 13 – Other measures for safeguarding
To ensure the safeguarding, development and promotion of the intangible cultural heritage present in its territory, each State Party shall endeavour to:
(a) adopt a general policy aimed at promoting the function of the intangible cultural heritage in society, and at integrating the safeguarding of such heritage into planning programmes;
(b) designate or establish one or more competent bodies for the safeguarding of the intangible cultural heritage present in its territory;
(c) foster scientific, technical and artistic studies, as well as research methodologies, with a view to effective safeguarding of the intangible cultural heritage, in particular the intangible cultural heritage in danger;
(d) adopt appropriate legal, technical, administrative and financial measures aimed at:
(i) fostering the creation or strengthening of institutions for training in the management of the intangible cultural heritage and the transmission of such heritage through forums and spaces intended for the performance or expression thereof;
(ii) ensuring access to the intangible cultural heritage while respecting customary practices governing access to specific aspects of such heritage;
(iii) establishing documentation institutions for the intangible cultural heritage and facilitating access to them.

Thus any country who was a sign this world treaty that isn't doing this is violating the human rights of its citizens. "Procedure for dealing with alleged violations of human rights" (Procedure 104)
