Visited Wingspan with a group of 33 seniors who all enjoyed this unique attraction. The people who are working with these birds of prey are so very passionate & dedicated to their work they deserve a medal for trying to save these birds from extinction. The flying display (at 2.0pm each day) of the NZ Falcons was great - several of my group took part, putting on a leather glove to let the falcon land on their arm - a real thrill for them, and a great photo opportunity too! While the birds are kept in an aviary, they do fly free every day while being rehabilitated & taught to hunt. They are still wild birds, not trained pets, so everything you see is a natural behaviour. The speed of these falcons is amazing, to say nothing of their eyesight - amazing! This is a truly great place to experience and can teach us all something about wildlife preservation. Highly recommended for all ages to visit.
