Who can join
Open to all schools
The ISLP is specifically aimed at school-aged children, 5 to 17, and offers all schools the opportunity to link with another school, either nationally or internationally using falconry and raptor conservation as a means of introduction. The ISLP works in collaboration with falconers, falconry clubs, falconry organizations, birds of prey rehabilitation centers, and raptor conservation groups. These collaborators are known in the ISLP as ‘associates’, each school in the ISLP has an associate attached to them. Any school can join, and participation is free.
Information for Schools
Through this programme students will learn about falconry and raptor conservation and interact with students in national or international schools. School twinning can enhance the school curriculum and build long-term relationships between children and adults in partner communities. The ISLP is open to all ages, although our experience shows the programme works best with students aged 8 and over.
Become an Associate
The ISLP works in collaboration with falconers, falconry clubs, falconry organizations, birds of prey rehabilitation centers, and raptor conservation groups. To become an associate of the ISLP you must have ties to one of these groups. We request the ISLP associates visit their link school with their birds of prey and delivers a presentation relating to any of ISLP objectives at least twice within a school year. We ask that the associate inform the EWG of their visits and topics covered by email or via the Facebook page.
