From Debbie Stewart of the New Zealand organization Wingspan Birds of Prey Trust.

To the falconers of NAFA, and NAFEX, from ‘down under’, a desperate call to help New Zealand falcons. Every year there is a competition to vote for New Zealands favourite bird, and we need your support! The New Zealand falcon is a threatened endemic species and needs help to increase public awareness. The Wingspan National Bird of Prey Center is campaigning to profile this dynamic and spectacular falcon; numbers are declining due to deliberate persecution and introduced pests.

Please register your vote to (if you have different email accounts you can vote numerous times). No donations required, just a simple vote. Wingspan would really appreciate your support, let us ‘throw down the gauntlet’ and vote for NZ falcon; this is a global effort of support.

Thank you from us, from Noel (NAFA member since 1990), Debbie, Wingspan and Koha.
