Collaboration with other organisations aids the science of breeding

Refining the science is always at the forefront of what is done here.  If breakthoughs in breeding can be atcheived through collobaration with other organisation this helps the science and discovery become available to others with similar aims to ours.  

The Centre has perfiected the freezing of eagle semen, in partnership with Dr Graham Wishart of the University of Abertay Dundee.  This produced the worlds first eaglet bred using frozen semen. 

 

This centre has worked with many  other oraganisations and universities to futher the knowlege and understanding of many species of raptor.
