Ornithology Exchange (brought to you by the Ornithological Council)

National Avian Research Center – Abu Dhabi Environment Agency

Chris Merkord

Through this Center, we promote conservation of bustards and falcons. We also aim to reconcile the tradition of Arab falconry with a sustainable use of resources throughout the bustards’ and falcons' range. Our aim is to save falcons, bustards and other bird species from extinction.


We are doing this through research, breeding houbara in captivity, forming international partnerships, habitat conservation and co-operation with falconers.


The National Avian Research Centre is located in Sweihan, Al Ain.
