Saker Falcon Falco cherrug

Saker Falcon Falco cherrug

All of Northern Africa, the Middle East and Southern Europe

Endangered

Sager Falcons are majestic and powerful birds of prey that have a wide range throughout much of Southern Europe, the Middle East and parts of Africa. Their plumage ranges from chocolate brown in colour to a pale sandy with brown bars or streaks and can be snow white and off-white.

The Saker Falcon has a large range from #Europe, to the #MiddleEast and #Africa, however they are endangered on @IUCNredlist from human-made threats including #deforestation. Join the #Boycott4Wildlife and help save them

This species has been uplisted to Endangered because a revised population trend analysis indicates that they may be undergoing a very rapid decline. This negative trend is a result of a range of anthropogenic factors including electrocution on power lines, unsustainable capture for the falconry trade, as well as habitat degradation throughout all three continents but especially in Africa.

This species has been uplisted to Endangered because a revised population trend analysis indicates that it may be undergoing a very rapid decline.

Hi, I’m Palm Oil Detective’s Editor in Chief. Palm Oil Detectives is partly a consumer website about palm oil in products and partly an online community for writers, scientists, conservationists, artists and musicians to showcase their work and express their love for endangered species. I have a strong voice for creatures great and small threatened by deforestation. With our collective power we can shift the greed of the retail and industrial agriculture sectors and through strong campaigning we can stop them cutting down forests. Be bold! Be courageous! Join the #Boycott4Wildlife and stand up for the animals with your supermarket choices
