Russian Falconry 
Book Survey

Promoting Environmental Literacy 
Since 1980

Thank you for participating in our web survey. All information from respondents to this survey will be kept in strict confidence.  Names, contact numbers, and addresses will not be shared with anyone not directly participating in the development of this book, and only for the sake of quantifying data.  Participants completing this survey will be acknowledged in the finished product. Pre-publication subscribers will be featured on a special page.

Raptor Education Foundation (REF) provided interpreting services for Mr. Noskov when he visited the NAFA meet in Dodge City.  He has asked REF to help with developing and translating his book into English to reach a much wider audience.  Because of his Siberian residence, communication’s with the author are difficult,  therefore we have developed this web survey to reach as wide an audience as quickly as possible, to determine the feasibility of  publishing  a book on Russian falconry. Data compiled will be provided to the author and the Russian publisher to determine the scope of the translated work.

We request that each of you forward the e-mail message you received with links to this page to anyone you think would be interested in seeing this book published for English speaking audiences.

Please review some of the remarkable images featured in  Yuri’s book. REF’s concept would focus on translating the pertinent sections of the book which deal with Yuri’s  successes with extreme falconry using golden eagles, and other raptors. This would include, his training regimens, husbandry techniques and tools, and profile other falconers pursuing  extreme falconry in places like Kazakhstan and the other ex-Soviet Republics where these traditions are still actively practiced.  As you will see from some of the images, this book has the potential to reveal a great deal of previously obscured history  from one of the wildest places in the world, with raptors whose very nature implies extreme techniques.
