“Birds of prey are graceful, lethally effective and have complete mastery of the air – they are among the most magnificent animals on earth”

Raptors, or birds of prey, are found all over the world, in every continent, except Antarctica.
With power, grace and supreme hunting skills, they have mastered virtually every type of habitat on earth.

The scenario was very different in the 1960s and 70s, when industrial pollution and poisoning from pesticides brought many raptors to the brink of extinction.

Multiple award wining documentary Return of the Raptors illustrates the dramatic history of Scandinavia’s birds of prey. In the early 1960’s, crippled and poisoned birds of prey became symbols of environmental awareness, and their plight led Sweden to become the first nation to restrict usage of industrial chemicals.

With more than 20 years of successful breeding programmes, many species have been saved and now the falcon, sea eagle and eagle owl are more numerous.
Unfortunately, not all birds have adapted to changes in the landscape.

This DVD is accompanied by a beautifully illustrated 24-page hardback reference book. Watch the close-up wildlife film and at the same time read the book to learn about habitats, diet, life cycle and more. The book is packed with intriguing facts, illustrations, photography and a 'Test your knowledge' quiz.

Produced and directed by Bo Landin and Roger Olsson for Scandinature Films (1996).
