In Dubai, falcons are a symbol of strength and patriotism. For Hamdan Ahmed Bin Mujrin, falcons also represent a family tradition. He comes from a long line of champion falconers who have passed down the skill of caring for and training these mighty birds. Now, he’s using new high-tech tools to advance the sport and pass on his passion to his son.
