UAE's Emirates Falconers’ Club has announced that its fourth International Festival of Falconry (IFF) will be held from December 4 to 9.

The festival, which will be held under the patronage of President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, is organised by Emirates Falconers’ Club (EFC) in cooperation with the International Association for Falconry and Conservation of Birds of Prey (IAF).
