Who We Are

The International Fund for Houbara Conservation (IFHC), the global leader in pre-emptive species conservation, is an organisation dedicated to the conservation of the Houbara bustard; an emblematic in Arab culture, which is listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List.

We are committed to fostering global dialogue and collaboration on conservation and have have agreements in place more than 20 countries along the Asian Houbara migratory route.

 

Our breeding and release programme is at the core of our work. It continues to expand year-onyear and is complemented by the Fund’s work in the fields of education, ecological research, and sustainable community development.
