Jorge Lisboa


Joint founder, former president, and current secretary of ABFPAR. I am one of the persons who introduced falconry in Brazil through ABFPAR. As the president of ABFPAR I accomplished the affiliation of ABFPAR with IAF (International Association of Falconry) and obtained the Brazilian government's authorization for falconry, making it possible to practice falconry in a legal manner. I have been announcing the environment organisms actively close to (IBAMA), to create the first law about falconry in Brazil.
I have practiced falconry for more than 20 years with Accipiter bicolor, Parabuteo unicinctus, Falco femoralis, and other species. I study the biology of Accipiter bicolor and have published several articles in the USA and Spain.
