Unique Encounters for our Visitors!


The Attica Zoological Park now offers a suite of new hands-on programs for our visitors with the aim of raising awareness. Check out the programs below, especially designed to bring you even closer to the animals you love.

Falconry is the craft of hunting wild game for food with trained Birds of Prey. It originated in central Asia more than 4000 years ago and became popular in medieval Europe sometimes being referred to as "the sport of kings" because of its association with the ruling classes of these early societies. Hunting using trained birds has died out but Falconry as a skilled activity within the context of wildlife sustainability continues with certain dedicated practitioners. This is your chance to be introduced to the art of Falconry including its history, basic biology and behavior of Birds of Prey, as well as threats they face in the wild, and all aspects of looking after the birds including training, equipping, feeding and flying as well as the importance of proper weight management and adequate diet. Participants will make their own jesses to keep, will each get a certificate and a commemorative photo. More advanced Falconer Experience sessions will be available upon demand for those that complete the Introductory course.
