About Radical Raptors

Gary at Radical Raptors

GARY

Radical Raptors is led by Gary Worley who, for over 40 years has trained horses, dogs and raptors as an amateur and as a professional on three continents. Fascinated by raptors and falconry from the age of 11, Gary had his first bird and his passion for teaching, learning and training began. For 15 years, Gary ran the National School of Falconry and the NSF Bird Control and Wildlife Management, managing over 80 birds of prey. He has trained, flown, and bred high quality falcons and raptors of all species for falconers all over the UK and the ruling family of Qatar. In 1980, he was part of a hunting demonstration that was present to H.R.H. Queen Elizabeth, and in 2000 took Prince Philip on a hunting trip with Harris' Hawks.

Moving to Canada, he opened the first Bird of Prey centre in British Columbia, as well as directing falconry demonstrations for Grouse Mountain, BC Kamloops Wildlife park, and the Greater Vancouver Zoo. He continues to run a raptor related company including bird control, presentations, school visits, summer camps, and experience days, and passes his wealth of knowledge of birds of prey to all he presents to.

ANGELA

She enjoys giving presentations and especially enjoys visiting schools and running the summer camps. Angela visits many venues with the raptors including schools, trade shows and presentations at the Zoo.
