The Sooty Falcon Movie - Official Trailer (French)
International title: "The Migrant - Sooty Falcons in Oman"
Diwan of Royal Court, Office for Conservation of the Environment, presents an INTEWO Inside Conservation Production. A movie by Robin Jähne & Sarah Herbort.
The Sooty Falcon (Falco concolor) breeds on the islands and costal cliffs overlooking the Sea of Oman. Studies conducted during the late 1970’s suggested that up to 10% of its global population bred in Oman. More recent studies indicate that the sooty Falcon’s global population may have suffered a 15% decline since then. In 2007 the Office for Conservation of the Environment (OCE), in collaboration with specialized local and international organizations, initiated a research project.
In this movie we accompany the scientists from OCE during their research and conservation activities in Oman and Madagascar. Latest recording technologies provide unique and so far unknown insights in the life cycle of this remarkable falcon, from the mating and breeding behavior, the growth of the falcon chicks to their maiden migration flight. A journey through breathtaking landscapes from Oman to East Africa, and further reaching the final destination, Madagascar.
