Episode 229: The Migrating Amur Falcon All Creatures Podcast

    • Nature

Birds continue to fascinate us, and the Amur Falcon is no exception. This fascinating raptor migrates farther than any other bird of prey on Earth. They reside in the Amur region of north China, Mongolia, Russia for part of the year, and then go on an incredible journey all the way down to South Africa. In this week's podcast we cover just how these birds make such an incredible trek. We also highlight Nagaland in Eastern India. It is a critical stop for the Amur Falcon before a long trek over the Indian Ocean. For years the Amur Falcon was poached by the tens of thousands. But conservationists, to include this week's interview Nuklu Phom, another Whitely Fund for Nature award winner, stepped in and stopped it. This is an incredible story about an incredible bird and not one to miss.
