Why Emiratis love falcons?
Falcons are a big part of traditional culture in the UAE. Their culture goes back hundreds of years when they were used by Bedouins as hunters to catch animals for food. There are hospitals in the UAE that only treat falcons, and they’re even allowed to travel in a plane’s cabin here – the only animals permitted to do so!
