Saker Falcon

The Saker Falcon (Falco Cherrug), is a bird species that is native to Lebanon and is classified as Endangered according to the IUCN Red List. This classification has been revised several times in the past years, and it is based on the rapid decline in this species’ population over time in its range area which is estimated to be around 10,900 pairs. The decline has been tightly associated with its habitat destruction, and unsustainable hunting and capture.
